Adopt a Block Sumatra
“Adopt a Block” is an initiative by Hutan Subur to protect Sumatra’s “Jungle Highway”, which links Batu Kapal/Hutan Subur’s orangutan habitats to the Gunung Leuser National Park, securing land at risk of becoming palm plantations or non-conservation friendly uses. The project aims to create a sustainable solution to protect the national park’s ecosystem, increase employment of locals in eco-tourism and eco-business, and support sustainable tourism and economic development.
