The Orangutan Tropical Peatland Project works to protect some of the most important areas of tropical rainforest in Borneo, including the peat swamps of Sabangau, home to the world's largest orangutan population. We monitor the behavioural ecology of the forest's flagship ape and cat species, carry out biodiversity and forestry research, and work with our local partners to develop conservation solutions and improve capacity for conservation in the region.
New logo launched!
We have launched a new logo to reflect the changes OuTrop has undergone since 1999, when we were first established.
Our short film takes a look at the new logo and how it represents our ecosystem approach to research and conservation.
