The authors bring an extremely grounded perspective to the politically charged issue of saving the rainforests, a battleground where biologists and environmentalists fight industry and agriculture to preserve a sensitive ecosystem. They reveal the devastating effects on the habitat of orangutans - who live only on the islands of Sumatra and Borneo - of recent fires, droughts, and widespread floods. Driving home the danger we face of losing these extraordinary animals, they evaluate the best ways to protect orangutans in the wild and preserve our evolutionary heritage.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
