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.

OUR  vision

to ensure long term protection of the buffer zone of The Leuser Ecosystem in North Sumatra


To halt activities that damage the buffer zone and are a threat to wildlife, and to assist forest edge communities living within the buffer zone of the leuser ecosystem
