Orangutans, Out of the Ordinary
Emma · Age 15 · Limerick
An image captured by Frans Lanting in 2018 of 2 orphaned orangutans in Borneo, was the inspiration for my artwork. Bornean orangutans are endangered, while Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered, due to massive habitat loss mainly due to palm oil plantations.
I think that many people don't realise just how extraordinary these great apes are, and we must do more to save them!
I hope that my drawing might illustrate the great beauty and resilience of these extraordinary animals.
