FRIENDS OF THE NATIONAL PARKS FUNDATION

Friends of the National Parks Foundation (FNPF) is an Indonesian conservation not-for-profit organization working to protect wildlife and its habitat, at the same time as supporting local communities.

Organizations such as the United Nations Development Programme, the Whitley Fund for Nature, and the Rainforest Action Network have recognized their projects on a global scale.


A group of veterinarians and conservationists founded the FNPF in 1997. They receive no government funding and rely entirely on volunteers and donations.


They intend to plant thousands of new trees in Tanjung Puting National Park in order to restore the animals' habitat. Large parts of the area were destroyed by palm oil companies and fires last year.
