Sumatra, the largest of the Greater Sunda Islands in Indonesia, is home to many of the world’s most threatened species.
Sumatra’s tropical rainforests are some of the most biodiverse habitats in the world, but they are at risk from deforestation for commercial and illegal logging, and oil palm plantations. The illegal wildlife trade also threatens Sumatra’s most iconic inhabitants, with songbirds and orangutans being kept as pets and rhinos and tigers hunted for their horns and skins.
We work in partnership with Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) to protect the island's wildlife, by providing our expertise in captive husbandry and conservation knowledge, and helping with the design of the ‘Haven’, SOCP's centre for conservation and education.
