Reducing human - orangutan conflicts

A workshop, aimed at reducing human-orangutan conflicts, was held at the beginning of this week and brought together oil-palm plantations, the Indonesia Palm Oil Association, regional government and NGOs. It was the first of a series of workshops, which aims to provide practical solutions to orangutan-human conflict.

One of the key aims is to encourage land-users to take on more responsibility for setting aside protected areas for conservation, buffer zones and habitat corridors – areas that reconnect isolated remnants of the forest back to the main body of forest.

Our partners in the project are Yayorin (the Indonesian Orangutan Foundation) and BKSDA-Kalteng (the Bureau for the Conservation of Natural Resources in Central Kalimantan) and we are extremely grateful to The Rufford Foundation for their support.
