Your support will help us reach our target of $2,000 to fund a Wildlife Protection Unit to patrol and protect critically endangered orangutans, tigers and elephants in the extraordinary rainforests of Bukit Tigapuluh, Sumatra, Indonesia. Our target to raise $2,000 will enable The Orangutan Project's rangers to patrol 26 square kilometres for a year!
While it’s recognised as a rare treasure for its exceptional diversity of life, the Bukit Tigapuluh ecosystem is under enormous threat. Bukit Tigapuluh National Park, which was established in 1995, covers only 42 per cent of the landscape. The remainder of the rainforest is unprotected and attractive to developers keen to expand rubber and palm oil plantations.
The Wildlife Protection Units have been highly successful in deterring illegal activities within the National Park including logging. They are responsible for educating local people about laws against poaching wildlife, gathering information about illegal activities and reporting these to the Forestry police and collecting wildlife data.
Local people are employed as members of the Wildlife Protection Units, giving good employment opportunities to local people and increasing the profile of Sumatran orangutans, tigers and elephants and their important role to balance the ecosystem.
