ANIMAL SIGHTEED AT OUR LODGE

ORANGUTANS at the Rimba Orangutan Ecolodge (ROEL)

 

One of the great sights at the Rimba is the sighting of an orangutan, usually a solitary male, in the trees overhead the lodge. Hearing the eerie long calls of males is common but sightings occur about once a month.

John Nicolas, the pioneer of the company Solar Power Indonesia, took the attached video during a visit to monitor progress on the complex solar system at the lodge. This male showed some annoyance at human activity around him but caused much interest in both staff and guests.  This small population of orangutans is not in the park as they are on the wrong side of the Sekonyer river, where Palm Oil plantations often illegally go near the river, beyond their legal limits. They are thus important to preserve.

The ROEL is the only hotel on the Sekonyer river where one can see or hear wild orangutans The Tanjung Putting National Park (TPNP), one of the few places left in the world where the orangutans can live in the wild.

The TPNP has been closed since May 2020 as the authorities are concerned COVID 19 may devastate them. The Rimba thus had had no business since March 2020 and is now struggling for its survival. We are obtaining private funding to plant trees in parts of the TPNP which were burnt in 2015. If you wish to support its survival and obtain tax relief for donations go to website https://www.wra.org.au/2018conserveourworld Every $ spent plants trees and adds to the meagre salaries of Rimba Staff.

ORANGUTAN di Rimba Orangutan Ecolodge (ROEL)

Salah satu pemandangan terbaik di Rimba adalah melihat langsung orangutan, biasanya orangutan jantan selalu menyendiri, di atas pepohonan.

John Nicolas, pelopor perusahaan Solar Power Indonesia, mengambil video ini saat berkunjung ke Rimba Ecolodge untuk memantau system tenaga surya di lodge ini.

Dalam video terlihat seekor orangutan jantan yang merasa terganggu dengan kehadiran manusia disekitarnya, dengan cara membuat suara yang khas. Orangutan ini tidak berada di wilayah taman nasional, melainkan berada di sisi sungai Sekonyer yang merupakan perbatasan antara wilayah taman nasional dengan perkebunan Kelapa Sawit. Sehingga wilayah tersebut sangat penting untuk dilestarikan

ROEL adalah satu-satunya penginapan di sungai Sekonyer, dimana kita bisa melihat dan mendengar langsung orangutan liar Taman Nasional Tanjung Puting (TPNP).

TNTP adalah salah satu dari sedikit tempat yang tersisa di dunia, di mana orangutan dapat hidup di alam liar. TPNP saat masih ditutup untuk pengunjung sejak Mei 2020, karena pihak berwenang khawatir dengan penyebaran COVID 19 yang dapat membahayakan mereka. Dengan demikian, di Rimba Ecolodge hampirdidak ada aktivitas usaha sampai saat ini dan berusaha untuk tetap bertahan.

Kami memperoleh sumbangan dana dari pihak swasta untuk menanam pohon, di beberapa bagian TPNP yang terbakar pada tahun 2015.
