The Gunung Gede Pangrango National Park on the island of Java in Indonesia is a habitat that is among the most notable in the world for its variety of plants and animals.
In addition to being the habitat of the Javan Gibbon and the Javan Hawk Eagle, which the IUCN red list classifies as being in danger of extinction, numerous other endangered species and species of animals that can be seen in no other area live in this park. Moreover, over 1,000 species of flowering plants are found here including 200 confirmed species of orchids, which account for one third of the species found on Java.
The Gunung Gede Pangrango National Park is the last remaining area of habitat for these animals and plants. If forest destruction continues, many specialists predict that in the near future most of these plants and animals that can only be found on the island of Java will approach the edge of extinction.
The planting efforts conducted in our Reforestation Project will contribute to the regeneration of habitat for these plants and animals.
Reforestation restores local ecosystems and leads to the protection of biodiversity.
