Project Report | Nov 20, 2019
Forever Forest

By Lucy Radford | Fundraising and Communications Officer

We recently asked our supporters on social media to help us come up with a name for our newest rainforest restoration site. Previously an oil palm plantation, this 890-acre piece of land was purchased through an amazing community fundraising effort, so it seemed only right that the land should be named by our community of forest fans too!

We had lots of beautiful suggestions sent to us and we ended up with a shortlist of three names, which hundreds of people voted on. The winning name was Selamanya Hutan, which translates as Forever Forest.

The restoration team has now cleared large sections of the site, using chainsaws to remove the oil palm trees. This has created space for a tree nursery to be built, so they can start growing the seedlings which will eventually be part of a thriving secondary forest, home to precious endangered species like the Sumatran orangutan.

Thank you for doing your bit to replant rainforest in Sumatra and contribute to a safe future for Sumatra's wildlife.
