Time for a nap! Some playful and unruly baby orangutans are wheeled to a place where they can take a snooze. As the forests of southern Borneo still are under pressure orangutans and many other species, as well as people, are acutely affected!
Please go to @mattiasklumofficial to meet a wild orangutan in the ancient forest of Danum Valley. At orangutan rescue centre Neuru Menteng hundreds of orphaned orangutan are kept while trying to find a safe new world for them. The name orangutan is derived from the Malay and Indonesian words orang meaning "person" and hutan meaning "forest", thus "person of the forest". One of the most intelligent, amazing and threatened primates on the planet. Today is !Help protect the orangutan and the rainforest! Support conservation organizations and by sharing this message! @thephotosociety @natgeo
