Oil palm plantation expanding into rainforest
When is the sound of chainsaws in a national park a good thing? When they are cutting down oil palms!
For just $1.67, you can cut down an oil palm that was illegally planted in the Gunung Leuser National Park in Sumatra - or why not take a chainsaw to ten for $16.70?
Our target is to cut down 9,000 oil palms, and then 75 hectares of land will be restored by planting thousands of rainforest tree seedlings, reclaiming vital habitat for orangutans and the countless other species that share their forest home.
All donations made to this project between now and the end of October will go towards our 'chainsaws for conservation' fund and we'll share photos and videos of the team in action in the field.
What's more, all donations made today, 21st September are elgibile to be matched by 30% as part of GlobalGiving's Bonus Day - so please help us secure this land for orangutans!
