Saving orangutans - just one example of what it entails.

This series of photos show the Ape Crusader belonging to the Centre for Orangutan Protection (COP) in action, Central Kalimantan, last week. On board are a small team from COP, making their way as best as possible to film and document illegal logging and the relentless devastation caused by oil palm companies. The forest you see in the photos is all 'secondary', meaning it has already been pillaged by loggers who took the largest and most valuable trees. Soon, the loggers will return and take what's left.
