UN Report Warns Borneo’s Orangutans Face Severe Threats from Land Cover and Climate Change

UN Report Warns Borneo’s Orangutans Face Severe Threats from Land Cover and Climate Change

Over 80 percent of the orangutan’s remaining habitat in Borneo could be lost by the year 2080 if the island’s current land-use policies remain intact, according to a new United Nations report.

The Future of the Bornean Orangutan: Impacts of Change in Land Cover and Climate (Download), which was published by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Liverpool John Moores University, in collaboration with the Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP), states that the massive conversion of Borneo’s forests for agricultural development – primarily oil palm – will leave the endangered orangutans fragmented and facing extinction in a number of areas.
