orangutans are highly intelligent, displaying advanced tool use and distinct cultural patterns in the wild

with deforestation, oil-palm plantations and killing posing a serious threat to its continued existence.
Sabah is one of 13 member states of Malaysia, and is its easternmost state. It is located on the northern portion of the island of Borneo. It is the second largest state in the country after Sarawak, which it borders on its southwest. It also shares a border with the province of East Kalimantan of Indonesia in the south.
In spite of its status as a Malaysian state, Sabah remains a disputed territory
the Philippines has a dormant claim over much of the eastern part of the territory. The capital of Sabah is Kota Kinabalu, formerly known as Jesselton.
Sabah is often referred to as “Land Below The Wind”
a phrase used by seafarers in the past to describe lands south of the typhoon belt.
