Hosting Secondary Students to Learn About Forest Restoration

The future is here. Thus the better or worse starts by now – Nayla

This week, we are humbled to have the Cat Mose Secondary School – London, UK visiting our Cinta Raja restoration site. For 3 days, they learned about the issue Sumatran forest. From the massive expansion of oil palm plantation, road construction to mining, these students were shocked to see what happened on the ground.

“I never realized how much palm oil industry can bring such a massive impact to the forest. I learned so much from the trip. Seeing the never ending palm oil plantation n the way is more than I could imagine.” Zac, one of the students said. Not only the issue, they also learned about restoring the damaged forest that is currently progressing on the site. These students learned from the beginning process of the restoration,  from the seedling production to the planting and also the maintaining.

“I would like to thanks to all of the OIC staff that have been working very hard to rebuild this damaged forest. They are not only helping the forest but also the world. This is such an amazing experience. Thank you very much OIC!” Ben, another students said.


The students planted more than 50 trees on this visit


Our hard work to conserve the orangutan and their forest homes are not easy. However, with the support of many people so far, makes every sweat is worth it. Keep spreading the good vibes, everyone!
