Our Projects

Orangutan Releases 2012

After years of planning and negotiating, delays from countless obstacles, and dedicated efforts to rescue and rehabilitate hundreds of orangutans, 2012 will finally be the year that BOS Nyaru Menteng Project can begin to re-introduce its orangutans to the wild!

Orangutan Islands

Orangutan Land Trust continues to help BOS Nyaru Menteng in securing, renting, and managing the river islands for orangutans undergoing the rehabilitation process.

Central Kalimantan Ecosystem Restoration Projects

Central Kalimantan represents both great needs and opportunities for ecosystem restoration. Many forests, including carbon-rich peatland forest, are under great threat due to drivers of deforestation such as illegal logging, oil-palm development, mining and fires.

Hutan Lestari Project (Everlasting Forest)

Various initiatives related to reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation (REDD) have begun in Indonesia with environmental NGOs playing a major role in developing pilot projects in Sumatra and Kalimantan.

Malua Bio-Bank

The Malua Wildlife Habitat Conservation Bank (Malua BioBank) is a first-of-its-kind business model for rainforest conservation. Located next to one of the last areas of virgin rainforest in Sabah, Malaysia on the island of Borneo, the Malua BioBank will restore and protect 34,000 hectares (80,000 acres) of critical orangutan habitat called the Malua Forest Reserve.

Seeking partners in West Kalimantan, Sumatra and Sarawak, Malaysia

There is a need to find and secure suitable habitat in West Kalimantan for the eventual release of several dozen orphaned orangutans from that region. If you can help Orangutan Land Trust acquire such an area, please get in touch.

Sustainable Palm Oil Campaign

Orangutan Land Trust is a member of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil, and very active in efforts to ensure that the palm oil industry works as sustainably as possible.
