Orangutans are great apes, belonging to the taxonomic family “Hominidae.” Scientists recognize two distinct species of orangutans:Pongo pygameus on Borneo, and Pongo abelii on Sumatra. The Bornean orangutan, Pongo pygmaeus, is further subdivided into three subspecies: P. pygmaeus morio in East Kalimantan and Sabah, P. pygmeus pygmaeus in Sarawak and the northwest part of West Kalimantan, and P. pygmaeus wurmbii in Central Kalimantan and the southwest part of West Kalimantan.
