Rainforest protection

Planting mangroves and community work

One of the preconditions for implementing successful environmental protection programs is
to raise the level of knowledge and general awareness among the population. For this
reason, PanEco is committed to contribute to environmental education in both Switzerland
and Indonesia. More than 20 years ago, we initiated the Environmental Education Centre
PPLH Puntondo on the island of South Sulawesi and we have supported it financially and
professionally ever since. Learn more about the activities of the PPLH

Camera traps in action

They are small, inconspicuous, and easy to operate and
and have proved invaluable for scientific work in remote areas such as the Sumatran rainforest. Wildlife cameras can provide us with important data on the biodiversity of the orangutan hbitat. See below who blundered into our cleverly placed camera traps last year!

Wildlife Corridors

A major threat to the survival of orangutans is the degradation or fragmentation of their habitat. The Batang Toru ecosystem is particularly affected. In this high-risk area, we are currently planning wildlife corridors to link sensitive orangutan populations.
