Heartbreaking footage of orangutan trying to fight off excavator

Deforestation alongside global warming are the major causes of extinction. While humans are destroying their homes, animals are nothing but helpless witnessed. However, when saw his home is going to be erase from the Earth, this orangutan decided to fight off. At leats he tried. All in a heartbreaking footage.

While the whole forest around him is being destroyed, and orangutan tries to stop it. In a desperate act, the animal wants to stop the excavator with his hands. As his first attempt ends up with him into a stack of trees, the poor animals look like he is not about to give up. In the end, he struggled to climb the machine back again.

The heartbreaking moment was captured on camera in West Kalimantan, Indonesia, as a construction crew demolished a section of the Sungai Putri Forest, a habitat of critically endangered Bornean orangutans.

At least, the orangutan was saved and relocated, thanks to International Animal Rescue (IAR). However, it can’t pass unnoticed how far these animals have been pressured by the humans’ actions.

In the last four decades, Bornean orangutans lost over a half of their natural habitats. And the main reason is logging operations. Nowadays, Sungai Putri Forest is among the very few homes left for these animals. But, unfortunately the place is under a major threat, because of humans actions.

“Sungai Putri is home to one of the largest populations in the world, and we are at a critical point for the Bornean orangutan,” Karmele Llano Sanchez, program director of IAR in Indonesia, stated. “Without forests like this, they can’t survive.”

IAR does restless efforts to save and the last natural environments in Indonesia, but their success rate seems to be very low.

Shocking Footage Shows An Orangutan Seeking Refuge From Bulldozer

Despite all the obstacles thrown at them, our team were able to rescue this orangutan and bring him to safety. Unfortunately, scenes like this are becoming more and more frequent in Indonesia. Deforestation has caused the orangutan population to plummet; habitats are destroyed and orangutans are left to starve and die.We need to ACT NOW.
