Orang Utan Dalam Krisis

Orang utan tengah mengalami krisis. Satu-satunya spesies kera besar Asia semakin berkurang jumlahnya akibat hilangnya habitat, pembunuhan secara ilegal, dan kebakaran.

Tiga spesies orang utan (borneo, sumatra, dan tapanuli) yang hanya dijumpai di Pulau Kalimantan dan Sumatra ini diklasifikasikan sebagai Kritis (Critically Endangered/CR ) oleh International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Sekitar 148.500 orang utan telah hilang di hutan-hutan yang ada di Kalimantan antara tahun 1999 dan 2015. Pada tahun 2050, diperkirakan 45.300 individu lainnya akan hilang akibat pesatnya laju perusakan habitat saat ini. Orang utan sumatra juga menghadapi kemungkinan yang sama buruknya. Para ilmuwan memprediksi bahwa total populasi orang utan sumatra dapat menurun sebesar hampir sepertiganya pada tahun 2030. Orang utan tapanuli, spesies berbeda yang baru diidentifikasi pada tahun 2017, berjumlah kurang dari 800 individu dan menghadapi risiko kepunahan paling cepat di antara ketiga spesies tersebut.

Room for Improvement: Using DNA Analysis to Address Rhino Horn Trafficking
09/22/2021
Law enforcement officials from around the world have seized illegal supplies of rhino horn at least once a week on average for the past 10 years. The type of seizure ranges widely. It could be a pair of fresh horns confiscated from poachers who just gunned down a rhino inside a national park. Or possibly dozens of horns were discovered cleverly hidden in an air cargo shipment. Sometime it’s just a few grams of powdered horn found in a traveler’s luggage. Maybe a mix of raw and carved horns was seized after a police raid on a trafficker’s home.

10/29/2021
Indonesia’s president must act now to prevent the irreversible decline of Asia’s only great ape, warns a new report by the Washington, DC-based Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA). EIA’s report reveals that Indonesia’s orangutan population is on a steady march to extinction due to a combination of habitat loss, illegal killings, and wildfires. In just four years, from 2016-2019, more than 1.825 million acres of intact orangutan forest was deforested according to EIA’s analysis. EIA’s findings are alarming in light of a 2018 study that found the island of Borneo alone lost an estimated 148,500 orangutans between 1999 to 2015.
