The Daily Digest: Tearing the Tapanuli Orangutan’s Habitat Apart

A hydroelectric scheme in North Sumatra is threatening the tropical rainforest habitat of the Tapanuli orangutan, the world’s rarest great ape. Green activists vow to keep fighting,  despite a recent legal setback. We revisit an Earth Matters interview with Distinguished Professor William Laurance as we discuss the current plight of the Tapanuli apes.
