Wild populations of the orangutan, found only in Aceh Province in southern Sumatra, Indonesia, have declined by 80 percent in the past 75 years. Only about 6,600 orangutans were left in Sumatra, according to the “Rarest of the Rare” 2010 report. It really breaks my heart to think that these amazing and wonderful animals could become extinct.

The Sumatran Orangutan is critically endangered. If you can financially support Chocolate, a 2 year old Orangutan living in the Batu Mbelin Quarantine Centre in Indonesia, with a monthly $10 donation (or via a Deluxe Once-off Adoption) you will receive a Bean Bag Orang-utan Orphan toy as well as a Certificate.
You can adopt Chocolate from The Orangutan Project (also known as T.O.P.) at this link HERE. The site explains how Chocolate got his name. You can adopt another Orangutan by clicking on “Adoptions” under the “How to Help” tab. Be ensured that your funds will be put to use for the welfare of your sponsored Orangutan.
Here is a photo I took today of Chocolate, my Orang-utan Beanie toy, with a pot of lavender and orchids.
Did you know that Orangutans are great apes, as opposed to monkeys, and are closely related to humans, having in common 97% of DNA? Extinction in the wild is likely in the next 10 years for Sumatran Orangutans and soon after for Bornean Orangutans. The Sumatran species (Pongo abelii) is Critically Endangered and the Bornean species (Pongo pygmaeus) of orangutans is Endangered according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species.
The Sumatran and Bornean Orangutans’ rainforest habitats are disappearing at an alarming rate due to deforestation and clearing of the land for pulp paper and palm oil plantations, with the remaining forest degraded by drought and forest fires. There has been some progress with the Tripa Peat forests in Sumatra, but YOUR HELP is urgently needed NOW to have the laws enforced to save the Orangutan and other Animals’ habitat in Sumatra.
