FOREST AND WILDLIFE CASES
Since 2019 to 2022, there are 64 forest and wildlife cases have been prosecuted. The number achieved through collaboration with the law enforcement institutions.
345 youth were empowered through Conservation Leadership Training (CLT), and Orangutan Caring Scholarship (OCS) program. These programs are organised for the youth from North Sumatra and Aceh.
WORKING WITH COMMUNITY
We believe change can be achieved by engaging local communities with the project, through transfer of knowledge and providing chances for them to apply what they have learned. More than 6,350 communities living in all of our project sites have received knowledge and understanding about human orangutan conflict mitigation, forest restoration, organic farming, and conservation at large.
