MOBILE EDUCATION AND CONSERVATION UNIT

Sumatra, Indonesia

The Mobile Education & Conservation Unit (MECU) in Sumatra is used to deliver targeted conservation education in remote areas around the Gunung Leuser Ecosystem where human/ape conflict exists, as well as conduct conservation related programs benefiting ape survival. The project's intent is to provide a multipurpose, reliable vehicle for educators and conservation specialists of the Orangutan Caring Club of North Sumatra to access locations near orangutan habitat.

Fundraising $2,500 will support an education program in one local village each year.

Pledge for our primates and secure hope for their future!

We would like you to come to understand that the habitat of the orangutan, the tropical rain forest, is vital to not only orangutans but to other wildlife and to all of us on this planet. Rainforests and related ecosystems provide important services from climate moderation, to water quality and erosion control, to storehouses of genetic, species and ecological biodiversity. Rainforests need to be sustainably managed to maintain these services. We want to inform citizens in our own communities of this connection and continue to enlighten local people in areas near orangutan habitat.
