Orangutans Discovered in Borneo

A previously unknown population of 200 rare and endangered orangutans was spotted in Batang Park in Borneo.

All of the subspecies of Bornean orangutans are endangered and only 3,000 to 4,500 individuals of the severely threatened subspecies Pongo pygmaeus pygmaeus are left.  Two thousand of those live in the Batang Ai National Park and the Lanjak Entimau Wildlife Sanctuary in Malaysia.
