There are fewer than 14,600 Sumatran orangutans remaining in the wild.
The main threats to their survival in the wild include loss of habitat, poaching and human-orangutan conflict.
Orangutans threatened by deforestation, as a result of farmlands, logging, mining, and roads. Due to habitat loss and fragmentation, starving populations of orangutans are driven to raiding crops, causing local villagers to retaliate.
