Our camera traps have caught images and footage of wildlife returning to the forest restoration site in Besitang, including a herd of critically endangered Sumatran elephants - see the images below! We have also been lucky enough to capture footage of the spectacular mating display of the Great Argus pheasant.
Orangutans and many other species, especially elephants and birds, are sometimes referred to as 'Gardeners of the Forest' because they actually help with the natural regeneration of the forest through the seeds that they 'plant' in their dung. It's really encouraging to see a wide variety of species using the restored habitat.
Thank you for helping us protect and restore Sumatra's rainforests, for all the wildlife that depends on them. Please share our project with your friends, family and networks, and help us restore even more crucial habitat.
