We need your help to get this fire team equipped and ready to protect the forest and reforestation sites before August. They need to protect key habitat areas for orangutans, feeding stations for released orangutans and the reforestation sites.

We are working with many local groups including the National Park and FNPF (Friends of the National Parks Foundation).
FNPF is an Indonesian not-for-profit organisation that has been planting rainforest trees in the degraded areas of the Park for the last 10 years.
Last year they lost around 130,000 young trees in the fires. Years and years of hard work lost. It was heart breaking.
Ecolodges Indonesia is helping build a nursery to prepare new seedlings from the generous donations from our last campaign over Christmas.
Thank you to all our wonderful previous supporters.
