The reduction and ultimately prevention of human-wildlife conflict is a major focus for The Sumatran Ranger Project. Thanks to a grant from The Thin Green Line Foundation we have been able to employ a consultant from Kalimantan to work with representatives and farmers from four forest edge communities that all experience conflict with Sumatran orangutans. 

The images below depict a cannon making workshop. Cannons are a non-lethal noise deterrent used to remove crop raiding or conflict orangutans from community gardens.
