A primate's charred skull, no larger than a tennis ball, lay under a scorched tree. No one said anything up to that point. But as soon as Tempo attempted to lift the object, two men who had been silent were alerted. One of them, Indriyanto from the Sustainable Ecosystem non-governmental organization, immediately said: "Do not move it. That's evidence." Indriyanto accompanied Tempo during a trip over a week ago to the burned peat swamp forests of Tripa in Aceh.
Both Indriyanto and Suratman, the local guides, were convinced that this was the skull of a baby orangutan which had perished in recent fires within the forest, which has gradually been cleared to make way for palm oil plantations. Both guides were convinced that they had seen two orangutans a few months ago in this peat swamp.
