Can you imagine how horrifying it would be if you were to be expelled from your own home? The same thing goes for THEM. .

This pics is our old tree planting project around Tapanuli Orangutan Habitat on 2013-2016, Can't wait the next round tree planting project at the next locations in mountainous of Batang Toru Forest Ecosystem Lansscape ( Tapanuli Orangutan & Sumatran tiger Habitat) #treeplanting #orangutan #conservation #sumatra #indonesia #asia

"When it comes to looking after all the species that are already endangered, there's such a lot to do that sometimes it might all seem to be too much, especially when there are so many other important things to worry about. .
.
But if we stop trying, the chances are that pretty soon we'll end up with a world where there are no tigers or elephants, or sawfishes or whooping cranes, or albatrosses or ground iguanas.
.
.
And I think that would be a shame, don't you?"

Only managed to get a couple of snaps from today's Melbourne Zoo adventure with @gibbonboy cos I was having waaaaaay too much fun 🐒🐘 Started the day absolutely sweating it out then ended the day getting completely saturated and soaked to the skin. Couldn't have spent the day doing anything better with any better people 💕

Caused primarily by human activity, the destruction and degradation of the tropical rain forest, particularly lowland forest, in Borneo and Sumatra is the main reason orangutans are threatened with extinction. | Image credit: @orangutanfoundationintl | If you would like your photo's featured by us please tag your images with #ofi_australia and we will credit you! 🐒

See this look? That’s what I look like right now. #Repost @natgeo (@get_repost)

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. 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. There is so much more to learn, but time is running out as they are critically endangered. Check out the link in my profile @TimLaman to read the @NatGeo News story about the new orangutan species, and check out the conservation group @socp.official working with the Indonesian govt to save these apes.

Symbolically adopted a Three-Toed Sloth, an Orangutan, and a Narwal. All these beautiful creatures (and many, many more) are losing their natural habitat to human activity through deforestation and climate change (specifically the melting of the arctic in the Narwal’s case). Humans screwed everything up for these species (and again, many more). If you can’t directly help these poor animals, choose to buy products that are environmentally sustainable (aka won’t continue to kill their natural habitats just for the production of a product), symbolically adopt an animal and/or donate (if you can of course) to wonderful foundations like the World Wildlife Fund of Canada (WWF-Canada)🐼 Everybody can do something, let’s be better humans✌🏻

(Credit for the wildlife photos goes to WWF, they are not my photos - obviously I do not have access to a Narwal, no matter how much I wish I did)

🤔💭 ... #LearningSomethingNewEveryday

By Natgeo: 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.

Revista "Muy Interesante"
País: Madrid, España
Idioma: Español
Descubren una nueva especie de orangután
Con el 'Pongo tapanuliensis', natural de Sumatra, pasan de seis a siete las especies de grandes simios que existen hoy en día.
Un grupo de científicos ha identificado una nueva especie entre los grandes simios: se trata del Pongo tapanuliensis, también conocido como orangután de Tapanuli–, y con él pasan de seis a siete el número de especies de grandes simios que existen hoy en día. Se trata de la primera especie de gran simio descubierta en 88 años. "Es increíblemente emocionante descubrir una nueva especie de mono", reconoció Serge Wich, profesor especializado en Biología de Primates en la Universidad John Moores, de Liverpool (Reino Unido), y coautor de esta investigación.

La investigación se ha sustentado en el análisis del esqueleto de un macho adulto muerto durante un conflicto con aldeanos del lugar, un estudio genético de los orangutanes, señala la división evolutiva que se produjo hace más de tres millones de años respecto a otros orangutanes y un estudio de sus diferencias de comportamiento y hábitat llevado a cabo desde 2006. Por ejemplo, a nivel físico, estos Tapanuli se distinguen de otros orangutanes en su cabello más encrespado y en sus cabezas, que son más pequeñas. También son diferentes por su dieta o por los fuertes sonidos que emiten los machos para anunciar su presencia se les puede escuchar incluso a un kilómetro de distancia.

Los científicos advierten de que si no se toman medidas de inmediato para reducir las amenazas actuales y aquellas que puedan sobrevenir en el futuro para conservar el hábitat en el que estos animales viven, “es posible que veamos el descubrimiento y la extinción de una especie de gran simio en el transcurso de nuestra vida”. #cigiiquintobs7 #orangutan #animales #hábitat #conservar

Pt 2. Spending just a few days in the Batang Toru rain forest was challenging enough for me, but Dosman does it full time. He and his team are the last line of defense for the Tapanuli Orangutans, now the most endangered great ape species in the world.

Pertama kali terbang ke Banjarmasin, memasuki daratan Kalimantan dari udara, pulau yg terkenal akan hutannya yg rimbun, satwanya yg beragam kok begini? Kok GUNDUL? hanya pepohonan disekitaran rumah penduduk yg bermukim dipinggir sungai yg ada pohonnya... Sisanya....
