WHAT IS
RIMBA RAYA?

Rimba Raya is a living example
of an economically viable
alternative to deforestation.

  • Rimba Raya is the largest REDD+ project in the world, in terms of avoided emissions delivered to date, protecting nearly 65,000 hectares of peat swamp forest in Central Kalimantan in Indonesian Borneo and avoiding more than 130 million tonnes of carbon emissions.

  • Rimba Raya is also the world’s largest privately-funded orangutan sanctuary.

  • Rimba Raya developes livelihood programmes in surrounding villages (addressing all 17 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals) to provide education, employment and hope for the future.

  • Rimba Raya is an InfiniteEARTH Project.

Rimba Raya was the first validated REDD+ project – ever – under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and helped define the criteria by which all projects are measured.

We were also the first REDD+ forest-carbon project in the world to receive triple-gold validation under the Climate Community and Biodiversity Alliance Standard (CCBA)

  • Rimba Raya, nearly the size of Singapore, protects one of the most highly endangered ecosystems in the world.

  •  We form a vital patrolled buffer zone between the ever-encroaching bulldozers of the palm oil industry and the Tanjung Puting National Park, home to one of the last remaining wild populations of orangutans on earth.

Rimba Raya

I've just visited our project in Borneo and I have to say that this was a definite highlight! This gorgeous young boy is definitely gaining in confidence. He was high up in the canopy as his mum, Putri, looked proudly on. She's doing such a great job and we couldn't be prouder. She's one of 27 wild-born orangutans that had been released into our Camp Rimba in 2017 and she's raising her son beautifully. Just look at that independence. What an honor it is to be able to witness this special moment in the life of a wild animal, particularly since our Camp Rimba isn't open to the public. We are determined to keep human interaction to a minimum so that these animals have the best chance at survival in the wild.
