Orangutan Alliance on site with International Animal Rescue

In October last year we assisted International Animal Rescue (IAR) in reviewing a community project. The project involved using forest grown products to promote alternative economic opportunities.

While we in Borneo we were lucky enough to join The Orangutan Project on an amazing ecotour of the jungle.

IAR is dedicated to their vision of a world where humans and animals coexist in sustainable ecosystems. They work throughout the world raising awareness towards mutual collaboration and collective action to protect natural habitats and wildlife. Implement effective and innovative methods to reduce the trade in wild animals. Ensure that animals remain safe in their habitat. Find out how you can support IAR HERE

The Orangutan Project was founded by Leif Cocks to save the Critically endangered orangutan as well as the critically endangered Sumatran tigersCritically Endangered Sumatran elephants and many other endangered species. It also saves the forest and supports local and indigenous communities. It does this through legally protecting forests, securing and patrolling orangutan habitat, rescue, rehabilitation and release and displaced orangutans and education and empowerment.
