Po, 8 year old male Borneo orangutan (Pongo Pygmaeus) is seen inside a cage at Antan Kalang village. According to the villagers Po was found in 2001 after land was cleared for oil palm plantations. The Sinar Mas Group, one of the largest companies in Indonesia, is clearcutting pristine forests in Central Borneo for expansion of oil palm plantations at an alarming rate. The consequences of land clearance for palm oil production are devastating for the wildlife in the area, including orangutans and monkeys who are dramatically threatened by the lost of their natural habitat.
