The Head of Research and Development of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Professor San Afri Awang, paid a visit to COP's Centre in Berau, North Kalimantan. He reassured the support from the Government of Indonesia for orangutan conservation. For orangutans, our new centre is probably the most luxurious centre in Indonesia as it is located inside the protected forest and rich with biodiversity. Once the rescued orangutans arrived here, they will have the best from nature.


"We just need to do in depth survey to determine wether it is suitable for a new habitat or not. However, COP's existence here is a big deal for research, security for the area and also opportunity for locals to be involved. This is a model for Integrated Conservation."
