We waited quite awhile trying to spot orangutans. Finally the “Stars” show up, but only two. We were hoping to see more but with wild animals you never know when or if they arrive.
Orangutans are one of the most endangered of Malaysian wild life species. Found only in Borneo and Sumatra, the Orangutan survival is threatened by forest fires, human destruction of native plants, poaching and illegal hunting .
The Orangutans are fascinating to see with their human expressions, and crazy red hair. They are skillful acrobats, maneuvering around trees and vines effortlessly. We watch until they climb higher and higher and eventually they are swallowed in the Jungle.
