            The fight to save Asia's apes  

                  Borneo's native orangutans now face extinction 
            Orangutans can only be found in the wild in Sumatra and Borneo. 

            But their natural habitat is fast disappearing - destroyed by 
illegal logging and palm oil plantations.

            Now orangutans face extinction.

            One sanctuary in central Kalimantan, Indonesia is trying to rescue 
the apes - taking in injured or orphan orangutans in the hope of rehabilitating 
them back into the wild.

            But if the rate of deforestation continues, there soon may be no 
forests to release them into.

            On this edition of 101 East, we ask - will Asia's native orangutans 
be sacrificed for economic progress.

            This episode of 101 East airs from Thursday, October 2, 2008
