THE HEART OF BORNEO FOUNDATION
When you think of Borneo, you wouldn’t be wrong to envision sandy beaches, lush greenery, tropical weather and orangutans. Yet did you know it is home to one of the largest rainforests in the world? The Heart of Borneo is not only the largest rainforest in south-east Asia, it is also one of the largest transboundary rainforests (covering Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei) remaining on earth. Yet, sadly this rainforest is under threat; Borneo has lost over half of its forest in the last 50 years.
Established in 2010, the Heart of Borneo Rainforest Foundation is working hard to protect all that live within its ecosystems. This includes the hundreds of different species of wildlife, plants and nomadic, indigenous tribes.
Their initiatives including the ‘1 million trees for Borneo’ project are carried out by a small team who are making a large impact on the ground. Their activities include expeditions, research, capacity building, along with education to engage local communities in order to make sustainable changes in the Heart of Borneo.
