Rimba Raya REDD+ Forest Conservation
Project developed by Infinite Earth
Forest conservation and restoration (REDD+)
Protecting endangered forests from illegal tree cutting or planting trees in areas that have already been deforested.
About the project
The Rimba Raya Biodiversity Project is one of the world’s largest REDD+ projects. Rimba Raya protects and preserves tropical lowland peat swamp forests, an endangered ecosystem, and is the native home to the Bornean Orangutan, as well as other endangered and threatened species. The project prevents this valuable ecosystem from being converted into palm oil plantations, and also protects the adjacent world-renowned Tanjung Puting National Park by creating a physical buffer zone on its eastern border.
