From the model

Task - try to read this section as fluently as you can, pausing where necessary at punctuation.

Significant areas of Orangutan habitat, through fires, has been cleared of trees for crops in particular to plant palm trees which are used to produce palm oil. Palm oil is used in many of our products today: food, cosmetics and bio-fuel. Palm oil – which is quite easy and cheap to produce - is incredibly popular with farmers and manufacturers. An estimated 80% of orang-utan habitat has been lost in the past three decades as a result of humans and their ever-increasing demand for palm oil.
