If we don’t speak out on behalf of our closest primate relatives, who will?
From what we have learned over the last century, orangutans possess all of the biological, psychological, and behavioral characteristics that endow them with personhood status. As a critically endangered sibling species, we owe each individual orangutan person as well as the small metapopulations of wild orangutans remaining a chance for a better life than what they currently have and to ensure their long-term survival in the forests that they call home.
