    About This Project

    Orangutans are close to extinction due to habitat loss.
    Southeast Asia has the highest rate of deforestation in the tropics, with less than 10% of forests under some form of protection. This research aims to discover if monitoring levels of nutritional stress in orangutans can proved a quicker and less labor-intensive method for detecting forest degradation.
