Join RSPCA NSW and RSPCA Victoria on the adventure of a lifetime in Indonesia! Trek through Sumatra’s last remaining tropical rain forest and raise vital funds to support the fight to end animal cruelty.
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 creatures.
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.
To conclude your jungle adventure, you’ll tube down river rapids to Bukit Lawang.
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, you will raise vital funds for RSPCA NSW and RSPCA Victoria to help prevent cruelty to animals.
All the funds you raise on this challenge will go towards rehabilitating, rehoming or rescuing animals in need. We rely almost entirely on the support of generous people like you, and your fundraising can help us continue to be the voice for animals in Australia.
