Presentation of past and future to the Anglo Indonesian Society
The Orangutan Foundation is always trying to reach out to new people who may be interested in the conservation of orangutans and their habitat… Charles Humfrey, previous Ambassador of the United Kingdom for Indonesia, invited the Foundation to present to the Anglo Indonesian society, with an aim to focus on our achievements and challenges yet to come… Here we report back on our ‘Past achievements and future challenges’ presentation…
On the 25th of February 2014, Ashley Leiman presented ‘Orangutan Foundation’s past achievements and future challenges’ to the Anglo Indonesian society, hosted by the Indonesian Embassy in Grosvenor square, London.
After the many members had received their first opportunity to catch up, eat, drink and view the stunning sculptural collection, members sat quietly in anticipation of Ashley’s presentation about the Foundation. Starting with the Foundation’s misson, Ashley highlighted the areas in which the Foundation work – both the locations and secondly, on the projects on which we focus - where we send 75% of the Foundation’s funds.Our work with co-operation and partnership with local stakeholders and other related international organisations (including our partner project Yayorin, and local government conservation authorities, local communities, industrial sector companies, other local and international NGO’s) allows a level of communication and collaboration that is invaluable to our main aim; protecting the tropical forest habitat.
As we work toward protection and conservation of critical orangutan habitats , we are proud to be able to conduct a variety of related programmes in parallel. These you may know from our website. Ashley was able to summarise with the following… “I have just returned from Indonesia, where I have seen the difference and progress we are making in all aspects of our work. We are committed to ensuring this will continue into the future: So we can realise our vision in which mankind can live alongside nature. Thank you all for listening to our story.”
