ORANGUTAN

The Orangutan is a great ape with long arms and reddish brown fur. Orangutans are found in the rainforests of Malaysia and Indonesia where they spend most of their time in trees feeding on fruit and plant matter.

Orangutans are highly endangered in the wild due to habitat loss (the destruction of rainforests for logging and agriculture) the illegal trapping of baby Orangutans for the pet trade.

The Mongabay Kids site (kids.mongabay.com) aims to help children learn about rainforests and the environment. This site is still under development and I am working to add additional content as time permits. If you have comments or are interested in submitting educational content for the site, please feel free to contact me.

The site is available in many different languages, including Portuguese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, and German.
