Sarawak, a state not always known for its wildlife, is set to join the “orang utan hall of fame”.

The orang utan population in the state now stands at 2,500 and plans are afoot to increase its population through conservation and sustainable development, an official said.

State forestry director Len Talif Salleh said orang utan population had been stable for some years, which he said was a testimony to the state’s success in conservation.

“We want to increase the population to three, four or even five thousand in the years to come,” he said.
