We are active here
Projects on Borneo
Sanctuary in Pasir Panjang
The sanctuary near Tanjung Puting National Park looks after 300 animals. Partially severely traumatized orangutans find there a new home. With their conspecifics they are prepared for a life in freedom.
Reforestation in Lamandau (Borneo)
20.100 trees for orangutans: A protected area of the size of Hamburg is one of the last retreats of orangutans and other species on Borneo. Through reforestation the diversity of the area is improved to provide the animals with better living conditions.
Projects on Sumatra
Orangutan release site in Jantho (Sumatra)
In the Jantho Nature Reserve in the province of Aceh in the north of the island, the Sumatran orangutans, which are threatened with extinction, are being given a chance to return to freedom. The release requires an intense observation (“Monitoring”) to ensure the animals survival.
We support the project “Orangutan Haven” of the organization SOCP, which is about the care of orangutans that for various reasons can no longer be released into the wild. In addition to enclosures for orangutans that cannot be released into the wild, an environmental education center is also planned there.
Environmental education in Germany
At information desks people learn about the threat of the orangutans and how we can save them. Educational projects familiarize children in schools and kinder gardens with these topics in a playful way. In addition, we prepare teaching materials for download.
Environmental education in Indonesia
To sensitize the Indonesian people for orangutan protection and rain forest preservation we work together with the Indonesian nonprofit organisation Yayorin. In Environmental Education Centers, adults and children learn more about these complex issues.
