What's happening at OC...

New From the Forest

We introduced our first-person essays written by some of the top conservationists in the field late last year, and they have helped to draw much attention to OC's partner projects across Indonesia.  This month, conservation ecologist Dr. Andrew J. Marshall offers an enlightening glimpse into the two studies he recently headed-up at Cabang Panti in West Kalimantan.  The Indonesian tropical forest is the setting for an inspired account of the challenges faced by orangutans and gibbons in their seven distinct forest zones as well as the challenges faced by the writer himself as he balances the worlds of science and practical conservation.  Read the article.

New Endeavors

With your ongoing support, the Orangutan Conservancy continues to work for the betterment of our forest relative through many current projects, and 2012 promises to be a very exciting time of new opportunities for our organization as well.  Details will come soon, but OC is in the planning stages of working with two new partner projects that we'll introduce to you in the near future.  One new study will provide an innovative approach to garner accurate orangutan populations in the forest.  The second conservation-based project, already well established in Borneo, focuses on achieving solutions to better protect and restore the fragile forest environment that Asia's sole great ape calls home.  By establishing new, important partnerships OC will be better able to do more to improve the plight of orangutans and their rainforest home.
