orang utangThe clock now stands at one minute to midnight for the world's four great ape species, the United Nations says. It is launching an appeal for $25m, the minimum it says is needed to avert their extinction within a few decades. All the apes - gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos (pygmy chimps), and orang-utans - face a very high risk of extinction within 50 years at most, the UN says. It hopes to establish areas where ape populations can stabilise or even grow, if it manages to raise enough money. The appeal is being launched at a meeting in the French capital, Paris, on 26 November. It has been called by Unesco (the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) and Unep, the UN Environment Programme.
