Orangutan means „forest man‟-a very suitable name for the largest of the tree dwelling apes; a large male can
weigh 90 kg.
Orangutans live in Sumatra and Kalimantan. They are very gentle animals and live quietly several meters off
the ground. They spend their time moving from meal to meal by passing from tree to tree, swinging rather than
jumping, using their long arms to carefully reach out the gaps among trees.
It is thought that there are about 150,000 wild orangutans, but only about 20,000 are in reserves and safely
protected from danger. The main threat to the orangutans comes from logging companies, or from people who illegally
capture and sell orangutan as pets. The logging companies exploit the living rain forests for timber but in doing so
destroy the environment for the orangutans. The orangutans need a dense forest so that they can easily move from tree
to tree in searching for food.
The destruction of rain forests could also bring about the extinction of the orangutans. The can not survive
without dense living forests.
36. What does the text tell us about?
a. the orangutans‟ preserve c. the existence of orangutan
