Found in 1961, WWF (then known as the World Wildlife Fund) was registered as a charity in Switzerland with the aim of conserving wildlife and habitats. In the years to come, they have broadened this focus to the wider implications of man's activities on the environment. 

Recently, radical development in the world have had influenced the existence of plants and wild animals. Sumatra – home to tigers, elephants, rhinos and orangutans – has lost 55 per cent of its natural forest cover that hundreds of species rely on including the endangered Sumatran tigers and four other big cat species. In particular, they work hard to protect the remaining 371 Sumatran tigers in the wild.

Various changes happened resulted in human activities. 

The “Planting For The Future” project definitely caught our attention at Laut. Rainforests around the world face serious threats, including from deforestation and poaching. In Indonesia, rainforests are disappearing at a rate of three football fields per minute and as a result, Southeast Asia is losing species at twice the rate as the rest of the world!

Until now, 744 trees have been planted at the target of 1000.

At LAUT we are hoping to make a difference by supporting the “Planting For The Future” project. We appreciate their contribution and dedicated work. We believe a thousand miles starts with a single step. Their great work will be successful and well recognized by the society.
