Predictions are that orangutans, the natural redhead great apes, could be extinct by 2020, which is part of the reason why IMAX made their wonderful documentary Born To Be Wil" !! Help save this gentle animal, the only great ape existing in the wild outside of Africa. The orangutans natural habitat is not the African continent but limited areas of rainforest in Southeast Asia. But it's not easy to go green and save them since their forest territory is on only two islands in this region of Earth: Sumatra and Borneo. As developing nations grow their economy to meet the demands of the Western world for palm oil as a preservative in everything from cosmetics to laundry soap, packaged diet entrees that don't need refrigeration and microwave popcorn, non-dairy coffee creamers and Girl Scout cookies, the natural equatorial forests become sandy deserts. Centuries old hardwoods are tonne down for mono crops and the wild animals that call the Indonesian jungle their home are vanishing. It's not just orangutans but the clouded leopard, pygmy elephants, many species of monkeys, and more.
