TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Head of the Borneo Nature Foundation, Juliarta Bramansa Ottay, said that a number of orangutan species populating Central Kalimantan’s areas are in the edge of extinction.

“The research that we conducted revealed that extinction is looming over diverse wild animal species, which include endangered species,” said Juliarta Bramansa Ottay at Palangka Raya on Friday, March 8.

According to Juliarta, the research was conducted in the area along the Rungan River located in the Palangka Raya City, Central Kalimantan. The team’s ground observation on fauna survey and visual observations managed to document 34 mammals comprises 19 protected species and 108 trees with 12 of them in the verge of extinction.

The team also observed 118 bird species with 27 protected ones. Meanwhile, there were five protected amphibians from the 20 reptilian species observed, and there were also 20 fish species.
