You know how important the rainforests are in the fight against climate change but sadly you are one of the few. You who can help us build our community, we can make an impact on climate change, rainforests and all the life they support. Watch Sir Richard Branson’s message of support for the rainforests with his beautiful frog, help us all make his wish come true, support the Prince’s Rainforest project.

Save Primates in Rain Forests

Posted by in Orangutan, Rain Forest on 22. May, 2009 | No Comments

Borneo Lowland Rain Forests are the richest rain forests in the world and rival the diversity of New Guinea and the Amazon. These forests are home to the world’s endangered orangutan.

Unfortunately, these forests have been rapidly converted to oil palm plantations or commercially logged at unprecedented rates over the past ten years. In 1997-1998 fires intentionally set to clear the forest for commercial agriculture such as oil palm ravaged Kalimantan. If the current trend of habitat destruction continues, there will be no remaining lowland forests in Borneo an Eco disaster for all forest insects, amphipians, and animals.

Borneo’s lowland forests are home to the globally recognized primate orangutan. The prehistoric race of orangutan distribution reached mainland Asia through Indochina and Thailand to southeastern China. Today the orangutan is limited to northern Sumatra and Borneo . Unlike other apes, orangutans are solitary and arboreal. They feed primarily on fruit but also feed on leaves, flowers, insects, and, during times of food stress, specifically bark . The orangutans move throughout the forest, following the fruiting of numerous trees. They have the ability to catalog the location and degree of a fruit’s ripeness for a large number of trees and species .

The orangutan is not the only primate in Borneo’s lowland forests. They are home to thirteen primate species: three apes (the orangutan and two gibbon species), five langurs, two macaques, the tarsier (Tarsius bancanus), the slow loris (Nycticebus coucang), and the endangered proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus). Most of these species have overlapping ranges, but they vary with respect to dietary content and foraging strategy .

Angels and Frogs

Angels live in the Rain Forest too, on this great Tepui as these table top flat mountains are called an unique world of amphibians and frogs are known only to exist there.

Angel Falls The world highest waterfall

Angel Falls The world highest waterfall

Angel Falls (indigenous name: Parakupa-vena or Kerepakupai merú which means the fall from the highest point, in Pemon language; Spanish: Salto Ángel) is the world’s highest waterfall, with a height of 979m (3,212ft) and a clear drop of 807m (2,647ft). It is located in the Canaima National Park (Spanish: Parque Nacional Canaima) , in the Gran Sabana region of Bolivar State, Venezuela.

The height of the falls is so great that before getting anywhere near the ground, the water is atomized by the strong winds and turned into mist. The mist can be felt a mile away. The base of the falls feeds into the Kerep River (alternately known as the Rio Gauya) which flows into the Churun River, a tributary of the Carrao River. Named after Jimmy Angel who discovered it when he flew past in 1933 and crash landed in 1937 on the top.

The Prince’s Rainforests Project invited Sarah Brightman to sing at an event they hosted to engage the financial community in the task of finding a solution to the problem of making rainforests worth more alive than dead. This is the film that accompanied her singing. The music is Nella Fantasia – used in the soundtrack of the movie – The Mission, and often called a Hymn To the Rainforest.
