Orangutans continue to be a threatened species, despite advances in labelling of palm oil goods. An estimated 50 orangutans die each week in Indonesia, as the pressure of the palm oil industry threatens this close relative of ours, and other species including the Sumatran Tiger. Other threats to their survival include the illegal pet trade.
