We have partnered with NGO The Last Of The Wild Places
Indonesia is made up of over 17,000 islands, including Borneo and Sumatra, the third and sixth largest islands in the world. Extensive mangroves, carbon-rich peat swamps and the third largest reserves of rainforests left on Earth are all found across this sprawling archipelago. Recognised globally for its exceptional biodiversity, many rare and unique wildlife such as Sumatran tigers, elephants, orang-utans and over 1,700 species of birds are found here. Your donation will help to restore ecosystems in this biodiversity hotspot that has experienced profound degradation caused by rampant deforestation for palm oil plantations, damaging peat fires, and extensive logging.
Our incredible partners in Sumatra are working to ensure balance is restored to forest ecosystems and the local communities that depend on them. Efforts are focused on mobilising support of locals and to provide work during the hardships COVID-19 has brought to rural communities. Your support will help by allowing the Forest Rangers to continue their patrols and work, whilst also planting trees to help regenerate land. By planting trees in Indonesia, you’re helping to create vital habitat for orang-utans and endangered wildlife in Sumatra, restore tropical forests that sequester carbon and enhance ecosystem processes in Sumatra and offer sustainable livelihood alternatives for locals.
Our partners will decide which native plants will be best.
