Young Female Orangutan
A young female Orangutan, Pongo pygmaeus, in a large jungle tree, posing for the camera. She stayed there for over 1/2 hour, preening and posing: knowing exactly what she was doing; and enjoying the attention. Just like all glamour seeking young women. Sepilok Rehabilitation Center, Sabah, East Malaysia, Borneo, South East Asia. Orangutans are highly endangered due to habitat destruction mainly due to the establishment of Palm Oil plantations. If we all stopped buying food and other products which include palm oil there would be a chance of saving these amazing animals.
