We were delighted to hear that our past grantee Panut Hadisiswoyo has been awarded with a Whitley Award- a prestigious international nature conservation award.
Panut is the Director of the Orangutan Information Centre (OIC) in Sumatra and has been working tirelessly to protect wildlife and rainforests for many years. He received his award from HRH The Princess Royal at the Royal Geographical Society in London during a special ceremony at the end of April.
Donations from our supporters allowed us to fund Panut’s work on Sumatran orangutans for over two years. You can read more about the projects and outcomes here – listed under our projects in Asia.
