Orangutans are the only great ape in Asia. Sumatran orangutans (SOUs) (Pongo abelii) are distributed in Northern Sumatra, Indonesia. To date, Sumatran orangutan is as one of the most critically endangered species in the world. The populations are drop drastically and going down every year. Due to a massive declining of its populations in the wild, therefore it is postulated that the species will face extinction in near future. The main factor of decline of the SOU populations is habitat loss from deforestation and forest degradation. Other factor is illegal hunting and trading.
