Chester Zoo – December 2010
Canon EOS 50D

Orangutans are the only great ape found outside of Africa. The Sumatran Orangutan is critically endangered.

Their numbers in the wild have declined drastically from more than 12,000 in the mid 1990’s to just 6,500 in recent times. With less than 900,000 hectares of suitable habitat remaining, it’s possible that this could be the first great ape to become extinct in the wild.
