STAY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE JUNGLE
Bukit Piton restoration area has been under the care of our founding Director, Teo, for almost 20 years. He has been leading a project to rehabilitate deforested areas of secondary rainforest here in an effort to let the jungle reclaim itself from heavy logging. Over his time in the forest, Teo has orchestrated the planting of over a million trees, many of which are now reaching maturity. The results are astonishing. In this 11,612 hectares area live an estimated 600 wild orangutans! They came back to the forest.
