EMERGENCY in Sumatra and Borneo !!!
The man-made fires that have been burning for the past three months have left an environmental and humanitarian crisis in their wake. Staff from our Rimba Orangutan Eco Lodge have helped battle blazes that have destroyed more than 16,000 hectares of forest in Tanjung Puting National Park and threatened hundreds of orangutans. Our Conservation Foundation has joined the effort to reforest this vital area, home to many threatened and endangered species. PLEASE can you help? For details see our conservation campaign under the OUR INITIATIVES tab.
