Thanks to my red fur, one can easily tell me from other big apes such as gorillas and chimpanzees. However unlike them, who live in Africa, I live in Asia. I spend most of my time up in trees looking for food and playing with members of my family.
I feed mainly on plants and fruits but can occasionally hunt and eat meat.
I am the unfortunate emblem for the fight against deforestation. Indeed the islands where I live (Sumatra and Borneo) are ravaged by companies who destroy forests to plant palm trees for palm oil production. Palm oil is used in many food items, so to help protect me ask your parents to stop buying products containing palm oil, which is also bad for our health!
