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.

Earth Day is 51 today!
The theme is- RESTORING OUR EARTH

"We must Restore Our Earth not just because we care about the natural world, but because we live on it. Every one of us needs a healthy Earth to support our jobs, livelihoods, health & survival, and happiness. A healthy planet is not an option — it is a necessity."- earthday.org

The key factors that we are encouraged to focus on are:
- Reforestation
- Carbon Capture
- Reduce the transmission of diseases
- Boost local economies
- Help stop erosion
- Protect biodiversity
- Support farmers in sustainable food production
- Food security
- Clean-up activities that reduce the amount of plastics in the environment

That's what we do every day at Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve.
Our stakeholders help us achieve all the above and more.

Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve is an InfiniteEARTH project.
