Success for Borneo Rainforest Appeal

The Borneo Rainforest Appeal has now raised £885,000 for World Land Trust’s (WLT) Keruak Corridor project on the north bank of the Kinabatangan River. When all 26 properties in the corridor are secure, Orang-utans will be able to roam across more than 10,000 acres (4,000 hectares) of forest, boosting their long-term chances of survival. Thanks to the success of the appeal, 21 of the properties have now been purchased. Please help us raise £115,000 to secure the remaining five properties.
