Habitat Protection – the core of what we do

The Orangutan Foundation has always made habitat protection a priority and the use of guard posts and patrols in protecting Tanjung Puting National Park and the Lamandau Wildlife Reserve, with their precious orangutan populations, has been extremely successful.

Our strategically located guard posts act as a visible deterrent to people trying to enter forests illegally, and as bases from which we can launch patrols and fire-fighting teams. They are an essential element in orangutan conservation; if the forests are not safe, neither are the orangutans.

By giving to this appeal you can be assured that you are literally helping to keep forests standing and orangutans in the wild.
