Welcome to a new year and our revamped website. PRCF is undergoing transformation, getting stronger, and doing better work in more exciting places.

About Us
about us

PRCF works as a federation of country programs that initiates member organizations in host countries. Our goal is that member organizations will eventually become independent NGOs in the country of operation, with qualified nationals in charge of their management and administration.

In Northern Vietnam, PRCF works in two karst landscapes; the Ba Be/ Na Hang Karst Forest Complex and the Cao Vit/ Bangliang Karst Forest Complex. The two ecosystems hold a number of valuable species, including three globally endangered primates: the Eastern Black-crested Gibbon, Tonkin Snub-nosed Monkey, and the endangered Francois’ Langur.

Working with people to protect their natural environment

about us

Our Mission

At PRCF we realize that local communities are integral to the success of nature conservation. We advocate community participation and discourage activities that negatively affect the natural environment or erode cultural identity.

Our members strive to conserve biodiversity, ecosystem services, and local cultural identities through participatory solutions that protect and promote the wise use of natural resources, support socioeconomic development of communities, and enable adaptation to climate change.

What We Do

Strong community participation, combined with PRCF’s long-term experience and technical capacities, enables us to develop and carry out innovative, site-specific conservation management strategies.

The result is projects that involve, empower, and benefit local community stakeholders, while promoting the conservation of biodiversity, especially species threatened with global extinction.

Priority Landscapes

PRCF is working across a range of landscapes that are defined as areas of high conservation significance due to the presence of endangered wildlife, with the potential to engage resource-dependent and marginalized communities into conservation and management of ecosystems.

Since 1995, PRCF has worked to secure the fringe forests around the Heart of Borneo, upstream of Indonesia´s longest river – the Kapuas. PRCF empowers local forest-dependent communities by securing legal management rights and ensuring more than twenty years of finance for nature conservation and community development.

In North Sumatra, PRCF is working at two sites. One is the now famous Batang Toru Forest Ecosystem, home of the world’s most threatened great ape – the Tapanuli Orangutan. The second site is an internationally poorly-known area, a biodiversity treasure called the Hadabuan Hills. Both areas are very significant for global biodiversity and were connected by rich forest a mere 2-3 decades ago.
