ADOPT TILA OR DEK NONG and contribute to the FOREST FIRES in INDONESIA
SOCP is currently offering all adoptions of Tila or Dek Nong to the Emergency Fire Appeal in East Kalimantan, Indonesia.
We urgently need funding to purchase equipment, logistical supplies, hiring local community members to make fires breaks and patrol the boundaries until new rains come. We estimate we need close to U$ 150.000 to fight this environmental disaster for the next 6 months.
The Sungai Wain Protection Forest in East Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo is a relatively small but incredibly important reserve. Not only does it have the last remaining primary lowland rainforest in the area and acts as home to 8 different primate species (including over 80 orangutans), hornbills, woodpeckers, the rare Borneo Peacock Pheasant and Ground Cuckoo, and all 5 of Borneo's cat species, but it is of crucial social and economic importance for the city surrounding it.
Sadly, this amazing forest reserve is under serious and immediate threat from fires in much of Indonesia, with the core primary forest currently surrounded by fire hotspots.
E4O is currently redirecting all funds raised through Dek Nong & Tila adoptions in our Build a Sanctuary program to the Orangutan Fire Appeal to assist with the fire fighting efforts and support orangutan survival.

You can help BUILD the Orangutan Haven & Wildlife Conservation Education Centre
The first step in development is to secure suitable land. You can help by virtually acquiring blocks of land in Northern Sumatra for a donation where all proceeds go directly to the Orangutan Haven development! You will also receive a certificate, orangutan bio and updates on the progress on the orangutan you support and Orangutan Haven.
