Person-of-the-forest

Wild orangutan (literally, person-of-the-forest) - and her baby - in the high hills of Leuser NP, Sumatra, Indonesia. These apes are facing a high extinction risk in the short term; they may well be in their last generations if no further action is taken towards preservation of their endangered habitat.
