The orangutan call centre.

By Lucy Radford | Engagement Manager

The Human Orangutan Conflict Response Unit team run a call centre via telephone and SMS message, enabling people to report issues with orangutans or other wildlife. This is particularly useful for people living in areas near the forest, where it is more likely that orangutans and other animals will pass through or near their villages. 

When someone calls into the hotline, the team immediately start gathering information about the area and dispatch someone to check it in person as quickly as possible before deciding on the most appropriate course of action. While most of the calls are about orangutans, the team has also been alerted to elephants and sun bears in close proximity to humans over recent months.

Thank you for supporting this work and making life safer for people and wildlife.
