The Sumatran Orangutan
The orangutan is humans close relative sharing 97% of our DNA. The Sumatran orangutan is critically endangered. The Sumatran orangutans are endangered due too lost of home from deforestation to make way for pulp paper and palm oil plantations, infant organgutans being taken away from their mums (which are normally killed) and sold on the black market as pets and hunting for their meat. Scientist estimate that by 2025 the Sumatran orangutan will be extinct. This is not something that we want!!! So please help!!

The Bengal tiger is found manly in India. It is estimated that there is only 2 500 left in the wild.
