Orangutans are exceptionally smart, and are able to use tools and communicate through sign language. They even have their own unique cultures with one another in the wild! Unfortunately, the Bornean species of orangutan is endangered and is severely affected by habitat loss and fragmentation due to human activity. The largest tree-dwelling animal alive, make sure you give this orangutan a canopy to hang out in!

Bornean orangutans are listed as endangered, mainly due to deforestation. Their range is limited because they cannot swim or cross rivers and other bodies of water. Other threats to the species include fires, habitat exploitation, pet trade, hunting and illegal logging. Bornean orangutans are protected by Malaysian and Indonesian legislation.
