Our Rainforest Home Appeal is fully funded.
We are delighted to tell you that we have reached the target amount of £870,000 for our Rainforest Home Appeal. We are so touched and so grateful for all the support we have received since we launched the appeal in August 2018. If you donated, shared, re-tweeted, forwarded emails or in any way offered your support – YOU have helped make this happen!
Reaching this target is a momentous occasion for us in many ways. It’s the most ambitious appeal we’ve ever run, by a long way, so to have received such wholehearted backing from so many people has been vital. While the appeal has been running, we’ve received several reports of further human-wildlife conflict in the plantation we’re buying, which highlights the urgency of the appeal. Giving this land into the care of the Orangutan Information Centre forest restoration experts will be a turning point – the land itself will no longer be a danger zone for elephants, tigers and orangutans, and the Leuser Ecosystem forest just beside it will have a new buffer zone to protect it.
This is a new chapter for this piece of land, and for the wildlife that depends on it. Thank you for all your support.
