Orangutans can survive in timber plantations, selectively logged forests

Date : 23rd September 2010, Source : Mongabay

The study, conducted by a team of researchers led by Erik Meijaard of Jakarta-based People and Nature Consulting International, found roughly equivalent population densities between natural forest areas and two pulp and paper plantation concessions in East Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo.
