Sponsor en hektar orangutang habitat


Hjelp oss å redde Indonesias truede arter i Kalimantan, på øya Borneo – inkludert den kritisk truede orangutang – ved å sponse våre skogplanting prosjekter. Du kan sponse:

  • planting av 10 trær – US $ 50
  • or the reforestation of an entire hectareUS$1,750

In both cases this covers the cost of growing the saplings in our nursery, planting and follow up maintenance for three years. Over the last decade and a half we have replanted more than 415 hektar skog - det er lik om 775 fotballbaner. Men det er mange, mange flere områder som trenger skogplanting akkurat nå.

We will give you the Google coordinates of your site, og sende deg årlige oppdateringer av planting aktivitet og tree overlevelse. Email us at info@fnpf.org if you would like to help.

Orangutans in Kalimantan, på øya Borneo, are a critically endangered species.

Support us to restore native forest habitat in Kalimantan’s Tanjung Puting National Park and Lamandau River Wildlife Reserve, home to some the last remaining protected sites containing large orangutan populations. Innenfor disse verneområdene orangutanger kan leve i trygghet uten frykt for å bli drept som skadedyr. Please help us to help the orangutans of Borneo survive.

Rapdily disappearing forest

Men, vast areas of forest in the national park and the reserve have disappeared, through farming, logging, gruvedrift, og skogbranner. Omtrent 65% of Tanjung Puting and 50% of Lamandau is severely degraded or cleared of forest. Vi arbeider aktivt for å Reforest disse områdene.

In addition to restoring the forest, we also rescue orangutans from surrounding farms and palm oil plantations and relocate them to the safety of these protected areas. Our reforestation projects are rebuilding native habitat to support an increasing population of orangutans.

Usually we select a site for reforestation that is adjacent to existing forest. Vårt mål er ofte å skape “korridorer” to connect existing patches of forests to one another. Corridors enable orangutan and other wildlife to travel from one area to another in safety and with access to food.

High survival rates

Our approach to reforestation in Kalimantan has been developed over many years, dateres tilbake til 1998 when we first started work in Tanjung Puting . Each reforestation project is planned over a three year time line. In year one we create a nursery close to the reforestation site, vokse tusenvis av innfødte saplings, og forberede planting nettstedet.

At the end of year one or the start of year two we plant the saplings. Planting er gjort i den tørre årstiden, because in the wet season the water level is often too high for planting or for the saplings to survive.

We care for and maintain the saplings for the next two yearscutting back aggressive weeds and grasses that can kill them, replacing dead saplings and protecting the area from forest fires.

Conservation education to boot

After three years the saplings are tall and strong enough to survive without regular maintenance. Our approach results in a sapling survival rate after three years of more than 70%. After this we continue to plant more saplings on a more ad hoc basis, erstatte de som dør, og å øke mangfoldet av arter.

Vi plante minst 400 saplings per hektar, men avhengig av ressurser – the funds we have to employ local staffwe try to plant more than 2,000 per hektar. Våre saplings er vokst fra frø, frøplanter og borekaks samlet inn fra de innfødte skogen. Vi har også hatt betydelig suksess med pode.

As part of the project we employ people from the nearby villages to help us. Ved å gjøre det, we also get the chance deliver our conservation education program to the communities, through events like community planting days and conservation camps for local children.
