The Restoration and Protection of Orang Utan Habitat in Northern Ulu Segama Project begun in 2008, when an agreement was signed between the State Government of Sabah and Sime Darby Plantation. In 2010, YSD continued the support, playing an active role by working closely with the Sabah Forestry Department and Sime Darby Plantation for the continued progress of the project. This project aims to enhance the biodiversity conservation and restore flora and fauna in the area, with the ultimate aim of recreating the habitats for the Orang Utan and other wildlife at large. The reforestation activity covers an area of 5,400 hectares (ha) of deforested land in Ulu Segama, Sabah with reforestation and planting efforts focusing on plant species that are considered important as food source for Orang Utan and unique for wildlife in creating natural forests.
