An orangutan mother is examined by rescuers after being tranquilized then falling from a tree into a net whilst clutching her baby in Sumatra, Indonesia.
A baby orangutan screams with fear as a charity worker plucks him to safety from imminent death.
The emaciated baby and his mother had become terrified of humans after palm oil workers bulldozed their habitat.
The desperate pair had been on the brink of starvation and had just days left before their home was wiped out for good by encroaching deforestation. But thankfully they were discovered by rescuers in an isolated patch of woodland due to be cleared for more plantations.
