Orangutan. Tanjung Puting National Park, Central Kalimantan, Ind

From a March 2009 trip with writer William deBuys traveling to Indonesian Borneo (Central Kalimantan, Indonesia) to visit with NGOs Yayorin and Orangutan Foundation UK to explore the social and environmental dynamics of forest conservation in and around the Lamandau Wildlife Reserve. The LWR is a release site for the Bornean Orangutans, the central area for an upcoming Rare Pride Campaign, and site of a proposed community-based carbon trading demonstration site for the UNDP’s REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation) program.
