Orangutan prison

Welcome to just one of Indonesia's prisons for orangutans. Make no mistake, the government of Indonesia is not in the last interested in either helping or saving this species.

To make matters worse, there are organisations like WWF who won't raise a finger to help these orangutans.

Look at the expressions on the orangutans in these photos and ask yourself why do so many so-called conservation groups prefer not to look.

Photos by the Centre for Orangutan Protection, who despite these orangutans being kept in these conditions are unable by law to rescue them.
