Fear of Losing Orangutans
BULLAH Hutasuhut pointed to a Tapanuli orangutan nest situated at a height of 25 meters on rambutan and frankincense trees in his yard in Sitandiang hamlet, South Tapanuli, North Sumatra, within the Batang Toru ecosystem. The Pongo tapanuliensis nest, made of leaves, was empty, with only rambutan peels scattered around.
Bullah, 68 years old, is well used to seeing fruit peels strewn across his yard. It means the orangutans had a feast in his yard
