Sir David Attenborough brought viewers to tears as Climate Change: The Facts airs on BBC. A clip from the episode shows an orangutan face to face with an industrial digging machine as it clears large sections of the forest for palm oil plantations. This is just one of the horrific ways that humans are contributing to the decline of orangutan populations.

This episode is part of the larger Our Planet Matters series on BBC.
