CAN Borneo (Conservation Action Network)
Orangutan Outreach is proud to support CAN Borneo and their work across Kalimantan, Indonesia. The CAN Borneo organization is working to restore forests with an agroforestry approach; save wildlife by establishing and running a wildlife rescue center; protect forests with rangers; and encourage people to create non-timber forest products. CAN Borneo is making strides in educating and raising public awareness of conservation issues, and in supporting local communities to create eco-friendly business.
In January 2021, CAN Borneo dispatched disaster relief teams of volunteers and staff to support the joint effort to assist communities devastated by flooding in South Kalimantan.
Armed with basic equipment and disaster relief skills (gained from experiences handling flood and forest fires), the teams set out. The aim was to lend as much support as possible for the people, wildlife and other animals affected by the flood.
