The Orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus) is one of humankind’s closest relatives – in fact, we share nearly 97% of the same DNA! The word orangutan comes from the Malay words “orang hutan“, meaning “human of the forest“. Because deforestation has reduced their habitat, and illegal hunting has put populations at serious risk, orangutans are listed on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species as ‘Critically Endangered’.
