Rewilding Sumatran landscapes

Before and after rewilding at Cinta Raja

Rewilding is a practice that gives hope to many people throughout the world, and it can be hugely inspiring to see what happens when that hope turns into action! And when it comes to rewilding in Sumatra, a picture can be worth a thousand words

Rewilding is the process of natural regeneration, enabling nature to reclaim landscapes and bring biodiversity back to the environment. Rewilding helps landscapes return to life and become places where wild species can thrive and play their own part in the process of natural regeneration.

SOS and our frontline partners in Indonesia have been turning hope into action for decades, and the results are already obvious. The wonder of the tropics is that the speed of natural recovery can be quite surprising!

Sometimes nature may need a helping hand. Our partners may need to clear human interventions like plantations, and plant a careful mix of local species to help nature bed back in. But as you can see from these photos, nature quickly finds her way!

It’s the hope for a thriving future for wild orangutans that drives us and our partners to take action, and seeing the results of that action helps us to find more hope! We hope you enjoy seeing these astounding images too – thank you to every single one of our donors – this is the difference your support is making on the ground, now and into the future.
