Greatly improved official orangutan survey figures released today provide a clearer picture of the plight of the species in Borneo, where the great apes are now thought to number only an estimated 0,13 to 0,47 individuals per square kilometers, down from the 2004 estimated density of around 0,45 to 0,76 per km2.
The new Orangutan Population and Habitat Viability Assessment, which the government says was carried out in much greater detail than ever before and over a larger area, found that of the 52 orangutan meta-populations surviving across Sumatra and Borneo, only around a third (38%) are expected to remain viable over a 100 to 500-year time frame. Habitat destruction and fragmentation is the primary cause of the great ape’s decline.
Last year, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) placed the Borneo Orangutan in the “critically endangered” category following the devastating fires of 2015 which stemmed from forest clearance and peatland drainage carried out by plantation companies. Orangutans are a protected species under Indonesian law.
