Halesworth Charity Raises £1million in aid of Orangutans

Posted on 20 May 2014 by Mark

Halesworth Charity

Halesworth’s World Land Trust Charity has raised £1million to help protect orangutans and other endangered wildlife by preserving their natural forest homelands in the Lower Kinabatangan floodplain of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo.

The money raised by the World Land Trust Halesworth Charity will do towards safeguarding the Keruak Corridor, a critically important strip of forest along the north bank of the Kinabatangan River, in which orangutans travel in search of food and mates. Other species will also benefit from the river bank’s protection, too, like pygmy elephants and the proboscis monkey.

The World Land Trust’s Borneo Rainforest Appeal was organised in partnership with a conservation NGO, Hutan, based in Sabah.
The World Land Trust has had its headquarters in Suffolk ever since it was formed in 1989, and the main headquarters of this charming Halesworth Charity have been located in Blyth House, Bridge Street, Halesworth since 1995.
