Sponsor a Naturalist
Your contributions directly support the local naturalist team. Members of the team work hard on their projects collecting invaluable data from their unique ecosystem while at the same time patrolling their range of the National Park to curb illegal poaching activities. These type activities lead by local people promote the community’s pride and understanding of their own environment.
Your support helps us acquire wildlife monitoring equipment, such as camera traps, so our naturalists can monitor the endangered populations of the forest. Monitoring activities take place in harsh and remote areas of the Gunung Leuser Ecosystem. These mountains of North Sumatra are dangerous and we need the team to be safe and with the right equipment. Your support goes towards obtaining field equipment so the research and patrol teams can do their job in the safest way.
