PanEco is a non-profit NGO with headquarter in Berg am Irchel, Switzerland. Since 1996 we have been actively involved in nature and species conservation and environmental education. 


For almost thirty years, our 27 employees in Switzerland and a further 218 employees of our long-standing partners in Indonesia have dedicated themselves to preserving and protecting biodiversity and promoting the responsible use of nature with a great deal of knowledge and passion. Find out how we achieved this goal last year in our programmes in Indonesia, at the Berg am Irchel Bird of Prey Sanctuary and at the Thurauen Nature Centre!
Orangutan protection, Rainforest protection, Sustainable development
The 2.6-million-hectare Leuser ecosystem is located in the Indonesian provinces of Aceh and North Sumatra. It is one of the largest, still intact, contiguous rainforests in Southeast Asia and the only place in the world where endangered species such as orangutans, rhinos, elephants, and tigers share the same habitat. PanEco has been working here for several years as part of a Landscape Conservation Project with long-standing, trustworthy partners – and with generous support from the Arcus Foundation.
In February, behavioural biologist Anna Marzec joined the PanEco team. After an introduction at the office in Berg am Irchel, she dived straight into our programmes in Indonesia – a travelogue:
