These guys are not only my favorite of the great apes, but my favorite animal of all. Orangutans are the ones that I feel closest resemble humans not only in intelligence, but in the way they interact with each other. They are the largest of all tree dwelling apes. As sweet as they are, they’re under critical threat primarily due to palm oil production. The production of palm oil continues to burn down the forests these guys call home, and they’re predicted to be extinct in the wild in the next decade. It hurts my heart knowing these awesome animals will only be seen in zoos and other means of captivity at some point in my lifetime. Go here to see more information on them. ⬇️ ——————————————————————————— https://www.theorangutanproject.org ———————————————————————————#orangutans #orangutan #primates #primatology #primateconservation #primaterescue #conservation #palmoil @zootampa

Koalas are tree-hugging marsupials with big, round ears and black oval noses. They are an iconic symbol of Australia, the only place in the world where they are found. Like kangaroos, wombats and opossums, koalas have pouches in which they carry their newborns. Koalas spend most of their time sleeping and eating. #koa#koala #australia_oz #conservation #ani#ani#animal>ct #wil#wild #wildlifephotography #wild #wildlife_perfection #animals #koala #safari #birdsofinstagram #wildlife_seekers #animal
