There are a number of ways you can give back to the local communities
Our Batu Kapal Conservation Volunteer Program.
Come and volunteer with us and make a difference! Help us protect this important buffer zone adjacent to the Gungung Leuser National Park, by participating in environmental mapping and animal surveying or helping to planting trees and bamboo wildlife corridors. This project aims to link important fragmented biodiversity hotspots of native vegetation to create wildlife corridors for the animals to move freely between the national park and the bufferzone, as part of our Orangutan and Wildlife Corridor Biolink Project. This buffer zone area is critical to the future survival of the wildlife occurring in the local area. A wild population of wild orangutans live in this bufferzone and it is rich with wildlife. You can either volunteer as part of your tour or trek to Sumatra or you can stay and volunteer for an extended time to help with these very worthwhile programs.
