The Orangutan Land Trust objective is to provide sustainable solutions for the long-term survival of the orangutan in the wild by ensuring safe areas of forest for their continued existence.
What the Trust Supports:
~Protecting existing orangutan habitat, especially that which contains significant populations of orangutans
~Finding, surveying and securing permanent release sites for both wild and rehabilitated orangutan
~Finding, surveying and securing river islands for the penultimate step in the rehabilitation process of orangutans, and as permanent sanctuary for rescued and rehabilitated orangutans not suitable for total release into the wild, such as those with chronic disease or disabilities
~Finding, surveying and securing new forest sites for the use of orangutans undergoing the rehabilitation process.
~Providing infrastructure for above sites, such as security posts, feeding platforms, fencing, etc
~Taking measures to protect these sites indefinitely
~Forest rangers/anti-logging operations/fire-fighting efforts in orangutan habitat
~Creating wildlife corridors
~Reforestation and regeneration activities
~Supporting alternative livelihoods and sustainable harvesting of forests (timber and non-timber forest products) in exchange for their protection in cooperation with local communities
~Exploring options for REDD/ Carbon Funding programmes in order to protect orangutan habitat
~Working with industries that pose a risk to orangutan habitat, such as the palm oil industry, to minimise impact in these areas
~Education, outreach and empowerment in communities living in orangutan habitat areas to protect these areas
~Lobbying local and national authorities to protect orangutan habitat

The Centre for Orangutan Protection (COP)
COP are a direct action group of Indonesian people who campaign to bring an urgent end to the destruction of our rainforests and the killing of orangutans. They focus on the cause of the problems as well as rescuing orphaned orangutans whenever they find them, which is often.
The Orangutan Land Trust (OLT)
As a land trust OLT focus on supporting the preservation, restoration and protection of land masses in the areas where orangutans naturally exist or have existed in the past. The main aim of this trust is to ensure that there are safe forest areas set aside for orangutans and other species which accompany them within their habitat to form a healthy ecosystem.
NEW PROJECT COMING SOON !!!!!
