TAKING THE ZOO TO THE JUNGLE

What would we be without our partners? As a foundation, we rely on the valuable cooperation with our partnerswho aid us with professional and financial support and stand in for the same values as we do. One of the most important partners is the Zoo Zurich.

For eleven years, our Sumatra-Orangutan-Conservation-Program SOCP has been an official conservation project supported by the Zoo Zurich. The zoo itself is home to Sumatra-orangutans and supports the conservation of endangered ecosystems and their biodiversity. In this context, a delegation of the zoo travelled with us to Sumatra and visited the reintroduction and monitoring station in Jantho, the rescue and rehabilitation centre, the site of the orangutan haven and the environmental education centre in Bukit Lawang. All participants returned to Switzerland with a backpack full of beautiful impressions and full memory cards. The resulting film will help sensitise visitors of the zoo to rainforest and orangutan conservation from next year onward.
