Nanda has been working for Orangutan Information Centre’s restoration team for almost 5 years, and is based at the Bukit Mas restoration site. Nanda grew up in a small village adjacent to the Leuser Ecosystem and witnessed deforestation in action around his home. Now, he works hard to plant trees, restore damaged and degraded rainforest and provide homes for orangutans and other wildlife. He says, “I feel beyond happy to see trees that I planted grow well and become a home for wildlife once more”.
