Notes: Orangutans are found only on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra.  Sumatra is part of Indonesia, and Borneo is divided between Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei.  The Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered, and the Bornean species is endangered.  The main reason for their decline is deforestation due to logging and forest fires.  Fortunately, there are a number of conservation groups attempting to save these adorable animals.
