We hope to buy 16 Camera Traps and associated hardware for the Orangutan Information Centre (OIC) to add to our existing Camera Traps in North Sumatra. A total of 20 cameras are required for a comprehensive survey of OIC re-forestation sites, to record the species returning to the new habitat.

This past April 2015 students from Cleveland District State High School in Brisbane Australia travelled to the Sabangau Forest in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo. The students participated in a number of workshops, including: primates, camera trapping, butterfly surveying, climbing the carbon tower, learning about habitat restoration and reforestation. Now it’s their turn to help out with fundraising to save oranutans and tropical peatland and for you to help them succeed.
SAVE the RAINFOREST. The race to beat the bulldozers and save vital orangutan habitat has now started. So far we have raised enough to buy 10 hectares adjacent to the Tanjung Puting National Park in Borneo, Indonesia. NOW we urgently need your help to buy 10 more hectares. Each hectare costs $550 so please make a tax-deductible donation now.
In the Sumatran rainforest we’re creating a special forest for Griffin Vollemaere. As they grow the rainforest trees we’re planting will recreate habitat for an enormous number of plants and animals. We’ve chosen this location for Griffin’s Forest as it will create habitat for the Sumatran Orangutan. So far we've planted 4,767 trees on our way to the 30,000 target. Please add your support!
Help us protect and expand the habitat for one of the last remaining populations of Sumatran Rhino as we revegetate the Way Kambas National Park in Sumatra. We are also planting food plants for this critically endangered species. Hanging on by a thread, in the Way Kambas National Park, there are believed to be only about 25 individual Rhinos left.
In April 2015, three conservationists from Goongerah Environment Centre (GECO) reported a VicForests logging operation to the Victorian government because rainforest had been logged in breach of the law. Despite the government promising to act, they have issued fines to three conservationists for "illegally" entering the logging coupe where they documented the dodgy logging practices. They need your help to pay legal fees.
