CHICAGO The remaining 62,000 orangutans in the wild could be wiped out within decades as forests in their Asian island habitat are decimated by loggers and palm oil farmers, say conservationists.

American zookeepers met at Chicagos Brookfield Zoo with conservationists working on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra to sort through problems faced by the redhaired Asian apes and find solutions.

There are quick and easy things everyone can do, said Ian Singleton, director of the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme on the Indonesian island, home to 6700 of the critically endangered fruiteating animals, distinctive for their thoughtful dispositions, strength and lionlike mating call.

Borneo, shared by Malaysia and Indonesia, is home to 55,000 orangutans.

Dont play into stereotypes when buying a greeting card with an orangutan with his hair teased up, Mr Singleton said.

Education is one of the strongest components and one of the best ways forward.

Zoos can play a role educating the public to buy foods or biodiesel fuel made only with sustainable palm oil, rather than from palm oil from plantations carved out of newly cut forests, Mr Singleton and other experts said.

Do not buy furniture even toothpicks made from tropical hardwoods that is not certified, whic michael kors online factory outlet h could mean it was harvested illegally inside areas designated as protected, they said.

And drop a contribution into zoo collection boxes destined for underfunded conservation efforts, they said. American zoos receive 180 million visitors a year an astonishing number of people.

If all those people put in $1, current funding of a few million dollars from the World Bank and other donors would be multiplied, said Se michael kors online factory outlet rge Wich, who surveys orangutan populations for the Great Ape Trust.

The decline of orangutan populations has been rapid, Mr Wich said, though figures are hard to come by, and their remaining habitat is shrinking at alarming rates.

A report this year from the United Nations Environment Programme said Indonesias forest habitat for orangutans may be gone by 2022 without intervention.

According to conservationists, a licence granted to cut down select trees is often followed by illegal clearcutting, with palm oil planting close behind.

Male orangutans usually flee the area, but females, with their young, often stay behind and may be killed and their infants kidnapped for the pet trade.

Hundreds of orangutans are rescued and taken to temporary sanctuaries, hopefully to be reintroduced into the wild.

Many attending the workshops expressed outrage at the exploitation for entertainment of the intelligent apes, which can grow to 136kg with a 2.13m armspan which often triggers deman michael kors online factory outlet d for orangutans as pets.

Orangutans and other great apes are not the only thing we are trying to protect here.

These species stand for integrity of forests and ecosystems, Mr Wich said.

The few hundred remaining Sumatran tigers, as well as elephants, languors, gibbons and many other rare species are also threatened.

Wich said fires raged again last year over vast peat forests drained by canals that were dug on the islands a decade ago, further crimping orangutan habitat and releasing large storehouses of greenhouse gases.

Balancing the needs of impoverished local human populations on the islands against the animals needs is a challenge, the experts said.

But government officials at both the national and local level have taken up the environmental cause, though they often lack the tools to direct development away from forested land. michael kors online factory outlet
