Sir David Attenborough calls for more protection for orang-utans

Sir David Attenborough has called for greater protection for the wild habitat of orang-utans amid fears "emotional" television programmes about rescued apes have failed to raise awareness of the need to protect the rainforests where the animals live says Louise Gray, Environment Correspondent in her article in the Telegraph.

"Every bit of the rainforest that is knocked down is less space for orang-utans. They have been reduced very seriously in the past decade, and we must do all we can to reverse this devastation. I fully support World Land Trust in its bid to save this important land!" Sir David is quoted as saying, in the article.

This picks up the theme of the consequence of the destruction of the rainforest habitat and survival of the orang-utans for the production of palm oil highlighted in the previous article 'How Britons fuel destruction of the rainforest'.
