The Sumatran and Tapanuli orangutans are endemic to the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Both are critically endangered, with the largest threat coming from destruction of their rainforest habitat for agriculure (especially palm oil plantations), mining and other developments. Sumatran Orangutan Society works to protect Sumatran orangutans, their forests and their future. They work in collaboration with other NGOs and partners in Sumatra to deliver appropriate and science-based conservation initiatives and carry out advocacy work to create a global movement of people and organisations who act to prevent Sumatra’s orangutans and other wildlife going extinct. We will supporting them from April to June 2019 and our donation will contribute to their campaign to protect the habitat of the Tapanuli orangutan, which is threatened by a proposed hydro-electric dam project.
