Chapter 4 - Illegal Mining
By a sheer stroke of good luck, you and your baby manage to escape the plantation, heading back into your beloved rainforest as fast as your arms can carry you. As you desperately attempt to find a safe haven, the nightmare continues. Poisonous mercury from illegal mining is seeping into nearby rivers...

If everything else wasn't enough, illegal gold mining can hasten the downfall of the orangutans and their rainforest house mates too.
