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.
