FILE - In this file photo taken on Saturday, Oct. 25, 2008, a female orangutan named Beki eats bananas at Tanjung Puting National Park on Borneo island, Indonesia.  When British naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace arrived in Borneo's jungles 150 years ago, one of his great hopes was to see orangutans. Even he was surprised at his success, spotting the red apes feeding along river banks, swinging between branches, and staring down from trees almost the moment he arrived.
