Just to remind us all of the tragedy facing wild orangutans in Borneo: forests, the only habitats orangutans have, are being decimated by palmoil plantations and industrial timber estates. I took this photo.Twenty years ago this was virgin tropical rain forest with thousands of wild orangutans and other wildlife. The forest was cleared and a monoculture of Eucalyptus planted. The Eucalyptus have just been logged and the desolate wasteland left will be heavily fertilized and then re-planted with Eucalyptus once again, mainly for pulp and paper. Orangutans are not koalas and cannot sustain themselves here. Orangutans become refugees in their own land, victims of a war they cannot win,a war against all wildlife that humans have been conducting for the past 50 years, a war that is based on the human capacity for greed.😒😒😒| Image credit: @drbirute | If you would like your photo's featured by us please tag your images with #ofi_australia and we will credit you! πŸ’

Lumley finds a quiet corner of the Learning Forest to eat the succulent fruits she has just discovered. While orangutans eat, they act as natural seed dispersers, helping the forest to grow and thrive. As they search for their next meal, orangutans also open up the tree canopy a bit, which allows light to reach the forest floor, further helping plant life to regenerate.
It is up to us now to nurture these natural instincts which are so vital to the health of our forests and planet. Help us support the 330 orangutans (and their appetites!) Head to our website now to see how you can help! | 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! πŸ’

We are in deep grief and sorrow to learn of the death of Tut, mother of dominant male orangutan Tom. Tut died recently from a miscarriage. As orangutans get older, pregnancy gets harder. Tut was in her late 40's and a dear friend to all at Camp Leakey where she lived. Our hearts go out to Dr Birute Mary Galdikas @DrBirute and all the staff at Camp Leakey and OFI as they mourn this tragic loss. Rest in peace beautiful girl. | Image credit: @ofi_australia | If you would like your photo's featured by us please tag your images with #ofi_australia and we will credit you! πŸ’

From a distance, Mumui stands out as an able climber traveling through the Learning Forest.
