Great Apes & Logging
All species of great apes are (critically) endangered; their continued existence depends on the conservation of the tropical rainforests. In the Congo Basin, the area inhabited by the chimpanzee, bonobo and gorilla, only 10–15% of the forests are legally protected, either as national park or nature reserve. The figure for South East Asia, where the orangutan dwells, is about 20%.
