Latest wildlife sightings from Sumatra

By Helen Buckland | Director

Wild orangutan spotted in the restoration site!
Wild orangutan spotted in the restoration site!

As we sit in our office in the UK, we often long to be in the heart of the rainforests of Indonesia. When we receive messages and photos from our colleagues on the ground in Sumatra it is always the highlight of our day, and sharing these with our supporters means that we can instantly brighten your day, too!

The latest photos from the forest restoration site certainly brought a smile to our faces, as the team spotted a wild orangutan, and the camera traps snapped Sumatran elephants too! Both are critically endangered species. The ever-more-frequent sightings of both orangutans and elephants at the site is a great sign that the young forest is already becoming valuable habitat for these and countless other species.

If you have ever daydreamed about exploring the rainforest, consider joining a very special expedition to the Leuser Ecosystem with us - the very forests that your donations are helping to protect and restore.  

Thank you for helping us bring back precious orangutan habitat - this project embodies the phrase 'conservation in action' and it is so wonderful to see the real results that your donations are enabling on the ground.
