Borneo & Sumatra Forest Expeditions 

with P a u l D a l e y


“If you have come here to help me you are wasting your time, but if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”

― Lilla Watson, Indigenous Australian Activist 


One community we have partnered with since 2011 is Tem'bak village in the interior of West Kalimantan province, Indonesian Borneo. This is an indigenous Dayak community who have resisted the invasion of industrial palm and are actively regenerating sustainable alternative livelihoods.

Entering this incredible village we are warmly welcomed into a way of life where community, belonging and nature connection allow us to slow down, breath, connect, laugh, play - learning from the original forest people of Borneo.

This is a unique opportunity to experience an authentic bio-cultural immersion in the heart of West Kalimantan.

Our local Dayak friends - Agung and Disrekia - local activists who are educating and inspiring change from the ground up - are keen to host you and share their love of the forest and their dynamic and continually evolving cultural connection to place.

Journey into the Heart of Borneo.

Details and Dates coming soon… (May 2020).


In Sumatra our friends at the Orangutan Information Centre (OIC) and Nature For Change (NFC) are actively planting trees and regenerating the Leuser Ecosystem - one of the most biodiverse ecological communities on our planet - the last place on Earth where Tiger, Orangutan, Elephant and Rhino co-exist.

In the past decade the Orangutan Information Centre alone have planted over 1.6 million trees, restored 1,500 hectares of forest and chopped down 15,000 illegal oil palms whilst rescuing hundreds of displaced Sumatran Orangutans.

The organisation now have 6 fully operational Ecosystem Restoration Camps strategically located alongside the Leuser Ecosystem with a new Permaculture centre and local green school program.

These bio-cultural forest expeditions are in full solidarity and support of the ongoing regeneration of our biosphere!

2020-2030 has been officially declared the decade of Ecosystem Restoration!

Let’s do this!
