SAVE THE ORANGUTAN

Save the Orangutan believes that orangutans have a place in nature – also in the future. But Borneo’s rainforest is disappearing, and the wild orangutan is threatened with extinction. With the help of dedicated contributors, we have been working for ten years to ensure the survival of the wild orangutan and halt clearance of its rainforest home.

In collaboration with, among others, the Indonesian partner Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOS), Save the Orangutan helps to protect wild orangutans in their rainforest home and secure rainforest, which the homeless orangutans can be released into.

To minimise the illegal activities that destroy one of Earth’s most important ecosystems, Save the Orangutan collaborates with local authorities. We involve the local people in the work to save the orangutan and support them in creating sustainable income opportunities.

REEF-CHECK

REEF CHECK MALAYSIA

In 2007, Reef Check Malaysia (RCM) was registered as a non-profit organization, its mission being to bring together stakeholders to collaborate on implementing coral reef monitoring and conservation programs. RCM is part of an international network with its headquarters in the United States, and one of 82 country offices worldwide.

Our mission is to educate Malaysians about the value of coral reefs and to build up a constituency of citizens who are knowledgeable and supportive of marine conservation. Our vision is sustainable managed coral reefs in Malaysia.

The focus at our two main project sites — Tioman and Mantanani — is to ensure local communities are fully involved in decisions that are related to the management of their island’s coral reefs. We are involved in similar smaller projects in two other locations in Peninsular Malaysia. The main aim of these efforts is to equip local stakeholders with knowledge and necessary skills. In the long run, we hope to be able to establish community-led marine protected areas.
