Orangutan protection

Moving into the Orangutan Haven on Sumatra

We are about to officially launch a new project that is unique in the world: Our Orangutan Haven will be the new home for orangutans that can no longer be released into the wild due to various impairments. The Haven is also an environmental education centre on the topics of rainforest, orangutans and illegal wildlife trade. The first orangutans are now being relocated from the quarantine and rehabilitation centre on Sumatra to a number of islands in Orangutan Haven.

This is how much the orangutans eat in the quarantine station

There are currently 58 Orangutans living in our rescue and care station on Sumatra. They receive their food delivered to their enclosures throughout the day. On average, the animal keepers give 3 kg of fruit, vegetables and green fodder per animal. The menu is richer than in the wild and orangutans also have favorite foods. When it comes to food, it is also important to optimally prepare the animals for life in the wild.

We impart knowledge about biodiversity, climate change and sustainable development in a variety of ways. Let us introduce our holistic environmental education project!

Evaluation in the Jantho Nature Reserve

How do we measure the impact of our work in Indonesia? How do we evaluate the implementation of our projects and programmes? Together with our sister organisation YEL and other long-term partners, we run a total of seven programmes in Indonesia. Last month, one of our grant projects was reviewed by the British funding organisation UK Aid as part of a three-year programme.
