Nestled on the edges of the Leuser ecosystem, the last place on earth where orangutans, tigers, elephants rhinos and sun bears still live together, our partners Orangutan Information Centre (OIC) are doing valuable orangutan rescue and forest restoration work. Join us for a special fundraising event and hear from Founder of OIC, Panut Hadisiswoyo about a special project that will help preserve this important area including their major reforestation projects.
This night will change the way you see environmental work, as you hear from these groups, who are together tackling deforestation and extinction from all sides. You will be treated to an exclusive viewing of the award-winning film, Keepers of the Forest, and take part in a Q&A session.
