Andrew Suryono. An Orangutan’s Struggle for Survival.
Having 97% DNA similarities to humans, Orangutan is considered one of the smartest animals on our planet. They're known to be able to use tools and imitate human behavior like this youngling who is able to use a Taro Leaf to protect herself from the rain.
Despite their intelligence, Orangutan is facing the grave danger of extinction. Around 7,000 Orangutans are killed every year and half of their population have vanished in the last 15 years due to deforestation and illegal poaching.
