Help Edgar’s Mission create a kinder world for farmed animals.
Journeying through Gunung Leuser National Park—the last sanctuary of the Sumatran orangutan—over four days you will trek through dense, enveloping jungle on the lookout for reclusive orangutans, gibbons, hornbills and other incredible animals.
As you make your way deeper into the jungle, the songs of native birds will grow louder and you will begin to feel as much a part of this unique ecosystem as the tall trees and native wildlife around you. At night, you’ll camp under the stars, lulled to sleep by the sounds of the rainforest.
As part of this challenge, you will have the opportunity to visit the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) in Medan, whose vision is to prevent the extinction of the Sumatran orangutan. Since 1999, hundreds of orangutans have been brought to the centre, and more than 220 have been reintroduced into the wild. Here, you will hear from staff about the long-term protection of wild Sumatran orangutan populations through rescue, rehabilitation, habitat protection and education.
Best of all, the funds you raise in this challenge will help us provide life-long love and care to over 450 rescued farm animals at our farm sanctuary in Lancefield, Victoria.
Are you ready to go on the adventure of a lifetime and help us create a kinder world for animals?
