CONSERVATION EDUCATION

Orang Utan Republik Foundation seeks out and administers funds to enable the Orangutan Caring Foundation of Indonesia (YPOI) to conduct community outreach programs where they are needed. YPOI operates the Mobile Education and Conservation Unit (MECU) program and continues to build its capacity to deliver quality conservation education to communities in both urban and rural regions of North Sumatra.

ORANGUTAN CARING SCHOLARSHIPS

The purpose of the program is to award tuition funding to talented and needy Indonesian students on a competitive basis enabling them to attend university in the fields of Forestry, Biology and Veterinary Science. In addition to being able to attend university, scholarship recipients develop an understanding of the plight of the orangutan from the perspective of the nongovernmental organization.

IMPROVING VILLAGE LIVELIHOOD

Providing villagers around Gunung Leuser National Park with relevant training and support has been valuable in building trust and respect regarding attention to the conservation education message. The Demonstration Plots we construct and operate showcase techniques that provide proof of concept for the various permaculture methods adapted from other areas and countries.

 

PONGO ENVIRONMENTAL AWARDS

Since 2014, the relevance of the Pongo Awards has been broadened to include recognizing and honoring individuals and organizations on an annual basis that have contributed to the improved understanding and appreciation of orangutans and endangered species, rainforest habitat, and for improving conditions for orangutans and other animals globally. Such individuals come from the fields of entertainment, commerce, academia, and government as well as from the non-profit sector. A nominating committee to the Board of OURF considers nominees for the award and chooses the honored recipients prior to the annual fundraiser.
