UN Takes Action to Protect Great Apes

Noting that the great apes could be extinct across most of their range within five to ten years, Klaus Toepfer, executive director of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), is urging businesses to contribute to the UN's Great Apes Survival Project. Starting with a budget of only $150,000, project directors believe that they will need at least $1 million to successfully jumpstart the UN's projects to protect endangered gorillas, orangutans, chimpanzees and bonoboes. Orangutans, native to Borneo and Sumatra, are endangered by habitat loss due to logging. This captive orangutan was photographed at the Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville, Texas. Orangutan are endangered throughout their range on several large islands in Indonesia. Logging and conversion of native forest habitats largely to production of oil palm is a huge driver of their possible extinction in the wild.
