Conservation innovation can help save endangered orangutans
Restoring Orangutans in Borneo
Conserving orangutan habitat protects many other species. Borneo is home to over 16,000 plant species, 1/3rd of which are found nowhere else.
According to the Half-Earth Project Map, 11% of Indonesia’s land is protected, but in Indonesian Borneo, over half of its land is already protected – 67% of land is already designated as state forest. Indonesia needs a further 33% of its land protected in order for the country to meet the Half-Earth goal.
