Orangutans are forced out of their natural habitat by palm oil and rubber plantations, logging, road construction, mining, and hunting. Having been granted permission from the director of the rescue centre hospital to document their work, I was there when a surgeon operated on an orangutan who had arrived blind and riddled with 74 air rifle bullets. He also treated Brenda, a 3-month old female whose left humerus had been completely snapped in two.

أجبرت مزارع النخيل والمطاط وقطع الأشجار وبناء الطرقات والتعدين والصيد قردة الأورانجوتان على الخروج من موئلها الطبيعي. بعد أن حصلتُ على تصريحٍ من مدير مستشفى الإنقاذ لتوثيق عملهم، كنت حاضراً هناك حين أجرى جرّاح عملية لقردٍ من قردة الأورانجوتان وهو كان قد وصل إلى المستشفى أعمى ومصاباً بـ74 رصاصة أُطلقت من بندقية هوائية. كما عالج بريندا وهي أنثى أورانجوتان تبلغ من العمر 3 أشهر بعد أن انكسر عظم العضد الأيسر لديها.
