Campaign to help reforest Tanjung Putting National Park
After a visit by senior mangement in early December, it seems the number of orangutans lost in the Tandjung Puting park is much lower than previously estimated. Nevertheless the damage by these fires is catastrophic. Basuki from Friends of Natinal Parks stated that he lost 95% of his replanted trees; 10 years work in smoke. Around 25% of the park burned. The rains are continuing and have brought much needed relief for the wildlife. It is critical now to use the rain to start replanting and formulate a plan for the future with local NGO and Government support. This is a massive undertaking.
Please donate to help plant trees to rebuild the forest.
