Orangutans are known to be the giant giants of the jungle but wild orangutans are becoming rarer and rarer as forest fires and palm plantations have decreased the orangutans natural habitat and led to sever population declines.

Scientists believe that there are approximately 50,000 orangutans left in the wild, most of which are found on the Indonesian island of Borneo. Orangutans are only also found on the neighbouring island of Sumatra, where they live in nests in the dense tropical jungle.

Despite the constant demise of the wild orangutan population, scientists have found a reclusive orangutan habitat in an inaccessible mountainous region deep in the Borneo jungle. There are thought to be up to 2,000 orangutan individuals coexisting in an area just a few kilometres sqaure.
