We spoke with Robert Risch of the Rhino and Forest Fund. In 2010 the Rhino and Forest Fund, in collaboration with the Sabah Forestry Department, started a project that aims to restore and reconnect forests in Sabah, Borneo. This forest restoration project serves to conserve and protect Borneo's unique flora and fauna.
One key project activity is the restoration of degraded forests, as well as illegally occupied forests, in order to improve wildlife habitat. Special focus is on ecosystem restoration on oil palm plantation land in order to create essential wildlife corridors.
The project receives financial support from the Borneo Orangutan Survival, the Leipzig Zoo of Germany and many individual donors.
