(The Independent) – An orangutan has been filmed seemingly defending its home from being demolished by loggers.

The animal was seen fruitlessly lashing out against a digger in the Sungai Putri forest in Borneo, Indonesia as loggers bulldozed through.

The video, which was reportedly filmed in 2013 but only released on Tuesday, was shot by International Animal Rescue, an animal welfare charity. [more]

5 June 2018 (International Animal Rescue) – This dramatic footage shows the devastating impact deforestation is having on precious orangutan habitat.

This desperate orangutan is frantically seeking refuge from the destructive power of the bulldozer; a machine that has already decimated everything else around him.

Despite all the obstacles thrown at them, our team were able to rescue this orangutan and bring him to safety.

Unfortunately, scenes like this are becoming more and more frequent in Indonesia. Deforestation has caused the orangutan population to plummet; habitats are destroyed and orangutans are left to starve and die.

We need to ACT NOW. This World Environment Day, plant a tree and help us rebuild and protect precious orangutan habitat. The situation is critical, and we are running out of time.

Plant a tree today!
