Indonesia's orangutans under threat

World's rainforests in danger and their animal inhabitants may suffer the most, summit says.

    The destruction of the world's rainforests has been under discussion this week at a summit in the Republic of Congo.

    Among the species threatened by deforestation are Indonesia's orangutans, which are among the most well-known victims of deforestation.

    However, a plan to release more than 600 of these primates back into the wild has been repeatedly delayed.
