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.

OUR MISSION

At Rimba Raya, we partner with local communities to develop solutions which provide sustainable growth of the economy while protecting and preserving limited and vulnerable natural resources.

We strive for operational exceptionalism across three industry standard measures:

OUR EFFORTS MATTER

Our measurable contribution to emission avoidance
is the equivalent of removing one million cars from the world’s highways every year for the next 30 years.

Orangutan Foundation International taking care of animals that can't take care of themselves! Well done!Among the many young and innocent animals that arrive at OFI's Care Centre in desperate need of care are not only orangutans but also sun bears. We now have 18 bears! Meet Chico! OFI's Bear of the Month.
Chico was rescued from Jakarta after being spotted in a tiny cage at Pantai Mutiara harbour and he was delivered into the care of OFI in May, 2017.
Upon arrival, he was malnourished and required extra food to bring him up to a healthy weight. He exhibited the trauma of being removed from his mother too young, continuously suckling his paw as a form of self-comfort. When using this coping mechanism, Chico emitted a low soothing hum, like a small engine. Sun bear cubs typically stay with their mothers for the first 18 months of life. Young cubs depend on their mothers for everything, from milk to affection and security. This sense of security is ripped away when cubs are separated from their mothers too early.
