of PanEco is about environmental conservation and education. We
stand up for the rainforest of the Sumatran islands and we want to stop the
logging. The habitat of the endangered Sumatran orang-utans has to be conserved.
Only 6'500 great apes still live in the Sumatran wilderness.
Our activities are about orang-utans and the peat swamp forest is in the north of Sumatra. The quarantine station is situated in Batu Mbelin. The red great apes get returned to the wild in the Bukit Tigapuluah national park and in Aceh (Jantho). The three observation stations in Suaq, Batang Toru and Ketambe deliver important findings about the biology of the Sumatran orang-utans. In the region Singkil is the peat swamp of Tripa where one of the last populations of orang-utans live. The target of our environmental efforts is the preservation of the unique diversity of species.
