The orangutan and other species living in this extremely biodiverse area are faced with extinction if continued forest habitat is destroyed. Palm oil plantations and logging have ravaged the forests of Borneo and Sumatra. Some of the richest and most biodiverse forests in Indonesia will soon be opened up for commercial exploitation under a plan drafted by the new government of Aceh.

The chairman of the Aceh parliament's spatial planning committee, Mr Anwar (who goes by only one name) has confirmed the plan would reduce the total forest cover from about 68 per cent of the province's land mass to 45 per cent.
The spatial plan puts two huge forest conservation areas under threat. One, the Leuser ecosystem, is a 2.6 million-hectare tropical forest that houses 54 per cent of Asia's terrestrial fauna including tigers, orang-utans, rhinos, elephants, and clouded leopard.
