The Batang Toru Ecosystem has very high faunal biodiversity. Ninety-one mammal species have already been recorded, including very rare species such as the sumatran tiger, and the recently described new great ape species tapanuli orangutan, only found in the Batang Toru Ecosystem.


Both these species and the pangolin, which also occurs here, are classified on the IUCN Red List as Critically Endangered, which means they are close to extinction. A further 15 species found in the forests are also classed as either Endangered or Vulnerable.
