Orangutans Killed for Palm Oil in Indonesia and Malaysia

Would you expect to get shot over 100 times in your own neighborhood? Probably not, but that’s what recently happened to a female orangutan when an agribusiness giant decided to set up shop by her house. Aan, a 15 year old orangutan, was shot by a plantation worker after wandering into a palm plantation, a place that, although no longer familiar, used to be part of her neighborhood. She miraculously survived, earning her the title ‘badass’ by medics, but she sustained serious wounds and was left blind.
