Transcript of Orang-utans

Adult male orangutans can weigh up to 200 pounds. Flanged males have prominent cheek pads called flanges and a throat sac used to make loud verbalizations called long calls. An unflanged male looks like an adult female. In a biological phenomenon unique among primates, an unflanged male can change to a flanged male for reasons that are not yet fully understood.
The two species of orangutan, Bornean and Sumatra, differ a little in appearance and behavior. While both have shaggy reddish fur, Sumatran orangutans have longer facial hair. Sumatran orangutans are reported to have closer social bonds than their Bornean cousins. Bornean orangutans are more likely to descend from the trees to move around on the ground. Both species have experienced sharp population declines.
What will happen if you start to save them?
Endangered Species
How to save them?
Since their species is at risk of extinction we have to do something fast before its too late.So in this prezi presentation we are going to be talking about how to save them in the next slide.
If everything works out fine then we maybe able to save the orangutan and make their species thrive.

1. People would be more aware.
2 .Government make new laws which does not allow
3. Orangutan species finally increased back to
same populations as before.

A century ago there were about 230.000 orangutans in the jungle,but now there are only about 45.000
to 69.000 left in the wild jungle.The cause of this is the tree logging industries that has brought down millions of trees which results a lot of dead orangutans.
The orangutans are the two exclusively Asian species of extant great apes. Native to Indonesia and Malaysia, orangutans are currently found in only the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra. However, this may change as the orangutan has been declared critically endangered by the IUCN.
The name orangutan means "man of the forest" in the Malay language. In the lowland forests in which they reside, orangutans live solitary existences. They feast on wild fruits like lychees, mangosteen, and figs, and slurp water from holes in trees. They make complex nests in trees by bending and weaving branches to sleep at night and rest during the day.
Many things can happen when you start saving the orangutans such as population growth and less habitat losses.But the real questions are would the orangutan species thrive or die out.
