Portrait of an Bornean orangutan

I feel uncomfortable looking at this picture. Who belongs on what side of the glass? Bornean orangutans are critically endangered due to the destruction and degradation of their habitats and hunting by humans. By 2025, their population will have decreased over 80% since the early 1970s.
