My experience with the GoEco Orangutan Health Project

I spent 2 incredible, unforgettable weeks in Indonesia, as part of the GoEco Orangutan Health Project. The staff there was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. I learned a lot about the threats facing Orangutans, including the Palm Oil industry and deforestation. The highlight was the 6 day trek in the jungle collecting plants orangutans feed on for self medication. I really felt I was contributing to the project as there is a great need for more information to be gathered and for further research to be conducted in order to continue learning about orangutan health and how orangutans combat disease. It's a great project and I highly recommend it!
