With the world and the conditions of rainforests changing, Orangutans will need to change too. The survival tactics that are essential to Orangutans today will likely not be as effective. Now, they are able to keep themselves protected by living in trees. Because of this, they spend 90% of their lives hanging from trees. Because of this natural protection that they have, they haven’t developed many survival tactics. This means that deforestation and the destruction of trees will cause them to need to make major adaptations. Orangutans will soon become much faster running than they already are. Also, their size will change because they will either need to be able to hide from predators or be able to scare them off and defend themselves. When Orangutans will no longer be able to rely on their habitat to protect them, they will need to make these adaptations in order to survive.
