BNF feature in new BBC series Earth's Tropical Islands

Baby Tapanuli Orangutan

UK viewers can tune into BBC 2 at 9pm on 2 January 2020 to see our conservation partner Borneo Nature Foundation (BNF) reveal an incredible orangutan discovery.

The BBC promises "a journey from Borneo's rich coral reefs, through lush jungles to its mountainous heart, revealing why this island is home to a greater variety of life than almost any other."

BNF have published an article on orangutan conservation and sustainable palm oil to accompany the series which you can read here.


Orangutan Appeal UK has been supporting BNF since 2012; their work in Indonesian Borneo is critical to the survival of the orangutans there. You can read more about the firefighting projecting and our partnership with BNF here
