On a slow boat to - anywhere.

These general freight boats are moored nearby the bauxite mine. These are the type of boats used to smuggle baby orangutans from Borneo to Java and elsewhere, after which the babies could be sold to anyone.

Of increasing concern is, the mining company are building their own private loading jetty. Which means no outsiders (people like us) will have a chance of seeing any orangutans being smuggled.
