The poem entitled, 'Primates' written by renowned local Dayak poet Yohanes Terang:

"Orangutan, primate pride of the world
Dweller of the jungles of Kalimantan and Sumatra
Orangutan, freely living in nature
Their habitat as yet unspoiled by uncompassionate man
Now all has changed, their homes torn to shreds
Ruined and ravaged by disasters brought by human greed
Plantations, mining, forest fires, illegal logging, wildlife trade
Constantly haunting them
Father and mother butchered
Their children kept as spectacles for the poor who have no money and possessions
Today we show promising signs
To maintain, protect and find solutions
So that destruction is averted
And we no longer need be angry and reproachful"

May this hopeful vision be realized ~♥~
