Rainforest Rescue

Help us protect the wildlife corridor

ūüö® Urgent Call to Action

Help us raise funds to protect and restore the wildlife corridor!

The clock is ticking, and the urgency to protect this crucial bio link has never been greater.

We must act swiftly to safeguard the rainforest home of native orangutans, elephants, rhinoceroses, and tigers. 

Campaign at a glance

Our Batu Kapal Conservation Wildlife Corridor Project is situated in a critical biodiversity hotspot adjacent to the UNESCO listed Gunung Leuser National Park, which is the last place on earth where orangutans, elephants, rhinoceroses, and tigers co-exist in the wild.
 
We are on a mission to protect and reconnect the Batu Kapal Wildlife Corridor to the Gunung Leuser National Park to ensure the safe passage of the orangutans and other endangered species.
 
Time is of the essence! The land in and around Batu Kapal faces an imminent threat of being sold to the palm oil industry and other land developers. The recent connection of this land to the electricity grid has intensified its desirability among developers.
 

We require your urgent support to purchase this land and secure the future of these magnificent species.

Campaign goal

We aim to raise 500 million rupiah ($50,000 AUD) to purchase the land critical to the conservation of the wildlife corridor.

 
Your generous donations will not only help secure the land and protect this area from being converted to palm oil FOR LIFE but also contribute to its restoration through our reforestation program.
 
Every donation, no matter the size, contributes to the urgent preservation of this remarkable sanctuary. 
 

ALL DONATIONS TO THE RAINFOREST RESCUE FUND WILL BE MATCHED TO A MAXIMUM OF 50,000 AUD, 100% OF ALL DONATIONS GO TOWARDS ON GROUND DIRECT ACTION
