L. Gerlach from Orang-Utans in Not e.V.Write a message

The Lamandau River Wildlife Reserve on Borneo comprises 76,000 hectare and is home for many endangered species and is also an important site for releasing orangutans back into the wild.
Orang-Utans in Not e.V. supports a reforestation program of Orangutan Foundation UK on areas that were destroyed by logging and fires. In order to improve the quality of the forests 20,100 trees from 16 species will be planted on 40 hectares. These trees serve both as food trees and as enrichment for the orangutans. The planting sites will be located north of Camp Rasak and west of Camp Gemini (see photo). The trees will be planted in swampy areas as well as on dry land.
