Great Apes of Sepilok – Orang-utans

Great Apes are threatened the world over. Illegal wildlife, bush meat, souvenir, and medicinal trades all being factors.
The main one is habitat loss, especially when talking about Borneo’s Great Apes, the Orang-utan.
Sepilok is the location of the Sepilok Orang-utan Rehabilitation Centre (SORC). They take in Orang-utans who have lost their homes or even their mothers. Even though it does have its critics I think a great job is done here when you put in perspective the sad logging of magnificent Borneo.
