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.
I'm so pleased that we are conservation partners with OFI! They do an incredible job and are so committed to the welfare of orangutans in our region of Central Kalimantan in Indonesian Borneo. Thank you OFI!OFI's history dates back almost 50 years when in 1971, Dr Birute Galdikas arrived in Borneo to study orangutans. Since then at least 500 orangutans have been rehabilitated & released back into the wild by OFI, not to mention the huge number of wild orangutans that have been rescued and relocated to safe forest & the countless hours of wild orangutan research that has been done. ...
