#TapanuliOrangutan

Today at Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP)'s Quarantine Center, we introduce some infant orangutans to the new forest school area. Deka, Sibring, Zuhra, and Ramadhani were exciting to play and training their wild behaviour around the trees.

A new species of orangutan was discovered last month. It’s been named the Tapanuli orangutan. There are less than 800 left in the wild, making them the most endangered great ape.

Im Frühling dieses Jahres war die Schweizer Kommunikationschefin in Batang Toru. Sie nahm diese schöne Aufnahme mitten im Regenwald - der Heimat der neu entdeckten Tapanuli-Orang-Utans. Batang Toru ist leider stark unter Druck. Wir setzen alles daran, dass der Tapnuli-Orang-Utan geschützt wird! ♡

The Tapanuli orangutan is a species of orangutan, native to South Tapanuli in the island of Sumatra in Indonesia. It is the first new species of great ape described since the bonobo from the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 1929! With fewer than 800 left in the wild, the Tapanuli is now one of the world’s most endangered great ape species.

Monkeys and orangutans need our help. Their habitats are being taken away every day, and in some areas of Indonesia, they have now contracted fatal diseases and are on the way to extinction. Unless we take actions to help stop the unconscious deforestation for palm oil without creating corridors for the orangutan, monkeys and other wildlife to live in. 🌍❣️

Photo by @TimLaman. The newest Great Ape species, The Tapanuli Orangutan, was just described! This is an adult male I photographed in Batang Toru in 2014 on assignment for @NatGeo, when I was lucky enough to have a chance to visit this remote site in Sumatra. The orangutans living there, only about 800 or less, have now been shown to be genetically distinct from both the regular Sumatran Orangutans, and the Bornean Orangutans. They are now scientifically recognized as a distinct species (Pongo tapanuliensis), and are only found in one small area of Sumatra in the country of Indonesia. Go to @TimLaman to see more images of the Tapanuli Orangutan, and follow the link in my profile to the article on @NatGeo News to learn more. #Endangered, #orangutan, #Tapanuli, #TapanuliOrangutan, #BatangToru, #Sumatra, #Indonesia, #IndonesiaBiodiversity, @NatGeoCreative.

from @timlaman - Photo by @TimLaman. A Tapanuli Orangutan male threatens another orangutan in the mountains of Sumatra. When I made this image in 2014 on assignment for @NatGeo, I didn’t know this isolated population was going to be described as a new species of orangutan, Pongo tapanuliensis! It is amazing that in 2017, we are still making new discoveries about the great apes, our closest relatives. But really, there is so much more to learn. For example, our short film called “Person-of-the-Forest” which I co-directed with @MelissaLesh, reveals some of the new findings about culture in orangutans – knowledge that is passed on from mother to offspring, and friend to friend. And if you happen to be in New York City this week, you can catch the New York premier of the film at the DOCNYC film festival where it is a featured selection. See link in my bio to watch the trailer and get the details to the opening this evening Nov 15th, where you can meet Melissa, and team members @tbfrost and @rrsuro.

Photo by @TimLaman. A beautiful fully flanged male Tapanuli Orangutan taking a mid-day siesta. It was amazing how relaxed this male was in our presence, as we followed him through the rugged mountain forests of Sumatra. So much so that he took a snooze in a small tree where I had a perfect view to get this shot. But sadly, if he understood the broader situation around him, he probably wouldn’t be so at peace. This newly described third species of orangutan, while just scientifically confirmed, only has less than 800 individuals in their whole population! Though highly intelligent, orangutans have little control over this situation….. its up to us humans to make the right decisions to allow Tapanuli Orangutans and all the rich biodiversity of earth to persist. Or not. Where do you stand?

The photographer of this photo had no idea that he had discovered an entirely NEW species of Orangutan. This stuff happens, new discoveries are being made every year. But as @pftompkins so eloquently states in an upcoming episode “still ain’t bigfoot” ... and ya know what? He’s right. What do you think?!

Photo by @TimLaman. A young, unflanged Tapanuli Orangutan male threatens another orangutan in the mountains of Sumatra. I just posted a shot of the much bigger male he is threatening over @TimLaman so check it out. Adult male orangutans are territorial and don’t tolerate each other. This young male is no doubt feeling his hormones surging and felt the urge to threaten the big male, but the big male just ignored him, knowing the younger male would run from a fight.

It's about time we started doing something with our platforms and discussing things that we are truly passionate about in this world and what really matters, rather than just focusing on the small mundane things in life, we should be thinking and talking about the far bigger picture of what's really going on. You need to make a change, you need to inspire others to do the same. Life in all forms need our kindness, help and love. Open up your minds. Make a change. Feel inspired. ~

Scientists have identified and new species of #GreatApe in the Indonesian island of #Sumatra - #TapanuliOrangutan. 💛
Now, while this is all very exciting because orangutans are my favourite animal, with fewer than 800 individuals left across a 1,000km2 area, this is the most #endangered great ape species in the world.
With threats including illegal trade and habitat loss, we need to do all we can to help support the safety of these magnificent animals in their natural habitat. ~
What can YOU do? - Well for more information you can start by following the links at the bottom of this post, and/or going over to the @leonardodicapriofdn & @leonardodicaprio and following the links in the Bio to have your voice heard! Sign petitions, give donations to projects all over the world from your phone! (We have this morning!!) Let's help stop deforestation and save the animals who live there.🌱 ~

If you're passionate about life and you keep telling yourself you're going to do something great and give something back one day, well now is the time. Tomorrow won't wait for you, we need to come together and change this world. What will feel like taking a small step today, is actually the biggest that you'll take in your life. You CAN help and your voice DOES make a difference!
Be heard!💛 ~
