amsterdam - The Bornean orangutan was threatened seriously for years, but is now closer to extinction a big step. On the infamous Red List of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is now 'critically endangered' after the name of the ape, the highest risk category.

The monkeys come except in Borneo only in Sumatra. Borneo takes its habitat constantly decreasing in size. Large parts of the forest are converted into plantations for palm oil and rubber, and thereby disappears wood for the paper industry. Moreover hunted monkeys.

IUCN also sounded the alarm about the whale shark, the largest cartilaginous found in all oceans. Their number has been halved in 75 years. Screws of vessels and fishermen are their worst enemies. They also often die as bycatch in the nets of tuna fishermen. WWF calls for stricter rules for trade in the fish. Especially Chinese fishermen do overfishing, which the whale shark is an endangered species on the Red List.
