Lone Orangutan Fights Back In A Heartbreaking Video As Loggers Destroy His Home



More than 2,5 million acres of Indonesian rainforest are lost every year. This senseless deforestation leaves many animals without a home. Animals, such as orangutans, suffer from logging the most. Their population has more than halved in the past 16 years. Non-profit organization International Animal Rescue are working very hard to save their plummeting population.

On Words Environment Day this non-profit shared a shocking video showing a helpless orangutan who tried to fight against the powerful digger which has already claimed his home. The video was captured in 2013 but it was recently released to raise awareness about the harm of deforestation to the orangutan habitat.

The video went viral with more than 10,000 shares and around 1mln views. International Animal Rescue teams encouraged the viewers to ‘plant a tree’ by donating.

Watch the heartbreaking video below and join the conversation about the impact of deforestation in the comments.
