Here is a selection of projects that are making a real difference on the ground.
A future for Nordin’s children
Our friend Nordin, forest defender and director of our partner NGO Save Our Borneo, has died of a sudden illness. His family is in danger of plunging into poverty. We want to ensure that his children can remain in school.
Help the Ekuri people of Nigeria defend their rainforest
The bulldozers are waiting and a potentially disastrous superhighway project is on hold for now. The indigenous people of Nigeria’s Cross River State are fighting for their community forest. They are in it for the long haul, and they need all the support they can get.
Planting trees for orangutans
Indonesian environmentalist Basuki Bude Santoso has planted thousands of trees in his lifetime. For a number of years, he has been working to reforest orangutan habitat destroyed by plantation companies – including 80 hectares of land deep in Tanjung Puting National Park.
Urgent: Palawan’s activists need our help
The situation on the Philippine island of Palawan is deteriorating: those openly opposed to the destruction of valuable ecosystems for plantations are receiving death threats. Yet the people are determined to stand up against land grabbing by agribusiness firms being backed by the government. Please help them to protect Palawan’s forests.
Creating protected areas for West Africa’s chimpanzees
Chimpanzees are our closest relatives – yet humans have driven them to the brink of extinction in West Africa. Protecting their habitat is crucial to their survival. Our goal is to stake out at least 100,000 hectares as protected habitat for chimpanzees, pygmy hippos and forest elephants.
Help indigenous people assert their land rights
Indigenous people in western Malaysia are setting up roadblocks, gathering video evidence against loggers and plantation companies, and using GPS devices to chart their ancestral land and assert their land rights.
Borneo: orangutan rescuers need our support
On a typical day, veterinarians of International Animal Rescue (IAR) make their way through choking smoke, weighed down with medical supplies, a safety net, animal carrier and face masks. They are called out almost daily to rescue orangutans and other animals trapped by forest fires and attend to their medical needs.
Peru: buying rainforest for a protected area
A cacao corporation is currently clearing rainforest land in the middle of the Peruvian Amazon for a vast industrial plantation – against the will of local villagers. They want to rescue their environment and urgently need our support to buy rainforest land for a protected area. Let's help them keep the land out of the hands of the cacao barons.
Borneo: environmentalists need our support
“The current trend of converting rainforest into palm oil plantations is devastating our country. Our people cannot provide for themselves any longer; endangered species such as the orangutans are doomed to die.” Our Partner Nordin asks for financial support to realize his action plan to save Indonesia's nature.
Cambodia: support the defenders of Areng Valley
Areng Valley, a remote region in southwestern Cambodia, is home to an ancient forest and numerous rare animal species. However, a planned hydroelectric dam threatens to flood the entire valley. The indigenous people of the valley and Buddhist monks are standing firm against the hydropower company and need our support.
Oil company threatens gorilla forest
Virunga National Park is the home of many rare animals. It is best known for the 380 mountain gorillas living in the thicket of the montane rainforests. The park rangers are now lacking the financial resources they need for their dangerous work. Please contribute to support the rangers and the gorillas in Virunga National Park.
Philippines: mangrove reforestation
On the Philippine island of Samal in Davao Gulf, fishermen and students are planting thousands of mangrove seedlings financed by our donations. Mangrove forests are highly diverse coastal ecosystems that that play a crucial role as a nursery for marine life, thus ensuring bountiful fishing in the future.
