Don’t miss this rare and exciting opportunity to learn from the rainforest defenders of the Orangutan Information Centre.
Panut Hadisiswoyo, award-winning environmentalist and Founding Director of the Orangutan Information Centre and Nayla Azmi, Orangutan Information Centre Communications Officer, will share their incredible work in a special interactive event on Sunday the 18th of August.
Learn how the Orangutan Information Center, an incredible Indonesian NGO has is making a huge difference in northern Sumatra through their conservation and community development work in and around the Leuser Ecosystem, one of our most biodiverse ecosystems, that includes the planting of 1.7 million trees.
The Leuser Ecosystem is also known as ‘The Last Place on Earth’, as it’s the only remaining place where Sumatran Orangutans, Elephants, Tigers, Rhinos and Sun Bears still share the same habitat.
Panut and Nayla will explain how their organisation reclaims and restores rainforest, and will share how they rescue orangutans, tackle wildlife crime, and work with local communities to transform their environment and their economy. Most important of all, they will engage and empower Australians with the knowledge and means to become rainforest defenders in their own right. Join us to hear how one Indonesian NGO is transforming the land in northern Sumatra. Through their work, they are helping local farmers to stop logging the precious Leuser ecosystem. This is a unique opportunity to hear from award-winning conservationist, Panut Hadisiswoyo, Founding Director of the Orangutan Information Centre and Nayla Azmi, OIC Communications Officer.
Panut and Nayla will share stories about the permaculture centres they are ‘seeding’ across northern Sumatra. Their first centre, GAYO Permaculture Centre, nestled on the edge of the Leuser ecosystem, has already taught permaculture principles to hundreds of community members and school children. Learn how they are using permaculture to regenerate the land, transform community reliance on monoculture, and demonstrate there is a vibrant alternative to destructive slash-and-burn farming.
Starting at 5 pm, tickets are $15 will all proceeds supporting the work of the Orangutan Information Centre.
