Campaign to help reforest Tanjung Putting National Park
The fires this year have been the worst ever. Fuelled by a particularly bad dry season due the El Nino weather pattern and the ever increasing clearing of land for palm oil, the fires have spread into National Parks and primary forest. It is estimated that 20,000 wild orangutans have been lost. The rains have now started bringing much needed relief for the wildlife and local fire fighters. It is critical now to use the rain to start replanting. This is a massive undertaking.
Please donate to help plant trees to rebuild the forest.
Your donation will go directly to helping the volunteers on the ground in Tanjung Puting.
