Good news for elephants, tigers and orangutans

With all the depressing news these days about elephants, tigers, orangutans and the like, it’s nice to see some good news. It seems that WWF, the Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS) and The Orangutan Project (TOP) are taking a unique approach to conservation.

They will be actively managing a former logging forest known as Bukit Tigapuluh (or Thirty Hills) on the island of Sumatra, thereby protecting rather than exploiting the 40,000 hectares of forest land’s natural resources.

You can find out more in the article entitled “Long-term Protection Achieved for the Sumatran Forest” from WWF Global via the Environmental News Network.  A big thank you to the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry. Hopefully this will be the beginning of a beautiful relationship with other groups following their lead.
