Young Orangutan at Play

from 20.00

An infant Sumatran orangutan entertains his curiosity alongside his mother, Mina, in the canopy of the Gunung Leuser National Park in the Northern region of Sumatra. Of the many dangers orangutan face in the wild, poaching is one of the larger threats for young orangutans. Baby orangutan are popular in the illegal pet trade, and capturing one means the mother must be killed. Even though this young one is lucky enough to reside within the National Park, the threats remain on the horizon without continued conservation efforts in place.

In the wake of the destructive palm oil industry, the loss of their natural habitat continues, making poaching easier due to more and more access roads throughout the country, these creatures are critically endangered and face the threat of extinction. Some are shot, as well as other wildlife, just for "trespassing" on plantation property.

Printed on lustre finish silver-halide paper. The Lustre finish offers a beautiful sheen, allowing the colors and contrast to pop without the distracting glare of glossy finish prints.
