2013 in Borneo:
Footage recently released by International Animal Rescue, shows harrowing footage of an orangutan trying to fight off a bulldozer destroying its habitat.
As loggers smash the base of a tree in the Ketapang District, West Borneo, heart-breaking video shows one of the great apes perched in the tree’s canopy as it falls to the floor.
In the footage – originally shot in 2013 but only released publicly now – the orangutan is clinging on as it slowly topples to the ground, the orangutan starts making its way down the trunk.
