Our project will also acts as a important educational platform for getting people’s attention who may know nothing about the catastrophe the orang utans are facing and how close they are to becoming extinct. By gathering the latest and up to date information, we believe our focuses on teaching the people about the Orang Utans’ activities and life styles in the wild, such as foraging for food, nest building, tree climbing and socialising, in anticipation for their eventual release into their natural habitat will help their world and us be a better and safe place to stay.
2. Summary of Our Project

One of our mains objectives are to learn more about the Orang Utan and spread the words across the globe to gain global attentions about these alarming situations. We are fortunate to have our own Orang Utan Island here in Malaysia which is located nearby in a 7,000 acre freshwater lakeside in Semanggol, Perak, Malaysia. The Orang Utan Island itself, which was formerly known as Pulau Panjang, comprises a vast 35 acre area, 5 acres of which has been set aside as a research centre for these endangered primates.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Based on our last year experience we believe that the levels of investment and subsidies for this new project can be overseen with our efforts and encouragement from our school principle. Hence upon our capacity of time and energy in gathering all the information and traveling to the location will be extremely exhausting and tiring. However, it is a physically and emotionally challenging to motivate us in completing the jobs that be handed to us as a school representatives to the project. The public, private and government sector market processes designed to attract investment into our activities may thus be attributable to information problems.
We start with the fundamental issue, by defining the inhabitants of the orang utan to be reviewed. We then turn to problems of sampling, response rates and bias. We use lessons learned from our classroom discussions effort to elaborate upon each issue. Second, we review the concerns we now are addressing in a further examination of developers and how our approach has evolved. This second section permits us to arrive, third, at some conclusions about the problems facing any parties attempting to draft any incentives to certain parties or individuals. Also, about the whole process of structuring the informing decisions that need to be made within short periods of time.

It is important therefore, that we not only execute the research but also address the main existing issues which could help other parties that in need to understand better the situation. To help us in this, we make sure to keep side by side with the organization to promote and educate the people all around the world the realm of the orang utan world nowadays. Therefore if there any possible project inputs which are relevant to our subjects such as Science and English then we definitely will make it as part of our school subjects’ project informally to adopt in the project.
