Tropical Forest Alliance 2020, General Assembly, East Kalimantan field trip
An orangutan eats food provided by the keepers at the sanctuary run by the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation in the Samboja Lestari conservation area in Kutai Kartanegara district, East Kalimantan, Indonesia, on March 13, 2016. This sanctuary offers a natural environment to orangutans that cannot be returned to the wild because of their severe disabilities or because they were raised in captivity and can no longer learn forest skills. Bornean Orangutans (Pongo pygmaeus) are classified as Endangered by IUCN because of the loss of rainforests to agriculture or fires, poaching and the pet trade.
