Plant 1,000 Trees For Orangutans

FUNDED May 13 2013 – Thank You!

SOS_DEC2013_0300The Sumatran Orangutan Society (SOS) has planted more than half million seedlings in Sumatra since 2003. Currently they are working in the degraded areas of the Leuser forests in northern Sumatra, an important former habitat of the Sumatran orangutan.

Their work elsewhere already is drawing these amazing great apes into areas with saplings and young trees.

The return of the wild orangutans to these areas of new growth in 2012 was “absolutely wonderful news,” said Helen Buckland of SOS. “It means that we are truly recreating orangutan habitat.”

In Sumatra, the great apes are sometimes called “gardeners of the forest, because they help to disperse seeds of fruit trees in their dung,” Buckland explained. “So the orangutans that are coming back also are helping to speed up natural regeneration of the forest!”

SOS recommends this short film was made by the London Natural History Museum for the Extinction: Not the end of the World? exhibition, launched February 2013, as an overview of the relationship between the orangutan and the forest:
