Orangutans Lying Beside Each Other

Orangutans lie beside each other at a forest school for orangutans in Palangkaraya, central Kalimantan May 3, 2007. Branded pests for venturing out from their diminishing forest habitats into plantations where they eat young palm shoots, orangutans could be extinct in the wild in ten years time, the United Nations said in March. Fighting against this grim prediction is the Nyaru Menteng Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) centre in Central Kalimantan, which rescues orangutans and returns them to the wild at the cost of US$3,000 per ape. The orangutans learn how to survive in the wild during forest school. They are taught to make nests, find the right foods and climb trees. REUTERS/Hardi Baktiantoro
