Become a GUARDIAN OF THE LAMANDAU WILDLIFE RESERVE and actively protect:

  • 158,144 acres of tropical peat forest (one acre is the approximate size of a football pitch) in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo

  • 500 critically endangered orangutans - a number which continues to increase as more are rescued and released

  • thousands of threatened species including gibbons, pangolins, clouded leopards, sun bears and proboscis monkeys

  • 36.5 million tonnes of stored carbon

HELP US to PROTECT this forest reserve and provide a future for orangutans, forests and people.

It costs £200,000 a year to protect the Reserve

You can help to protect this globally important forest ecosystem. A regular gift provides invaluable support to our crucial ongoing work in the Lamandau Wildlife Reserve. Integral to this are our skilled staff, reliable equipment, and sound infrastructure.

The Orangutan Foundation’s 60 Indonesian staff work on the frontline of conservation. They guard and patrol the forests and rivers. They rescue and monitor the orangutans. They replant and nurture tree saplings to enhance this incredible habitat. They gain trust and support from local communities.

Without our staff the forests and the wildlife will disappear.

The future of Bornean orangutans will very much depend on the long-term security of large, strictly-protected forests.
