Trees in Asia
Indonesia is home to magnificent rainforests, carbon-rich peatlands, and awesome wildlife like orangutans, proboscis monkeys, Sun bears and more than 1,700 species of birds. This project focuses on the Kalimantan region in Borneo, home to the Tanjung Puting National Park. 4 years ago, rampant fires burnt and destroyed more than 30,000 hectares of its forest. We work to restore areas affected by these fires, as well as those threatened by the palm oil sellers and illegal mining.
Our experienced planters in Indonesia work to ensure balance is restored both environmentally and economically with the growth of new trees. This project helps to educate local villages about the importance of conservation, create jobs for those in the area, and provide long-term income for the community. To reach this area requires a four-hour boat ride through areas inhabited by orangutans, hornbills, proboscis monkeys, crocodiles, and many more unique flora and fauna.
To ensure your donation makes the biggest impact possible, our partner will determine which native species are most appropriate to plant for that time of year. Native Indonesian species that we plant include: Mentawa, Papung, Ubar, Halaban, Nyatoh, Jinjit, Betapai, and Sundi.
