About 30 female orangutans have died as a result of the fires in Kalimantan," said Willie Smits, coordinator of orangutan conservation activities at Indonesia's Environment and Forestry Ministry in Jakarta.
The islands of Borneo — about two-thirds of which is Indonesia's Kalimantan Province — and Sumatra are the only places in the world where orangutans are found in the wild. There are estimated to be fewer than 30,000 of the orange-haired primates — at least 30 percent fewer than a decade ago.
Environmentalists warned that the threat to endangered and vulnerable species could become much worse if the fires continued to spread.
