Beginning in 2020, the Cikananga Wildlife Centre started a sustainability program focused on food production. The farm is a diversified organic operation, growing an assortment of vegetables and fruits, with all produce provided to the animals of Cikananga. Additionally, we recycle all our organic waste, producing compost, which we use to improve our soils. Moreover, in 2021 Cikananga started an agroforestry program by planting roughly 1,000 coffee shrubs. Once established, Cikanaga’s agroforestry program will be used as a model, to help local farmers transition to regenerative agriculture practices and conduct habitat restoration.
Wanicare supports this program to further develop Cikananga to help the rescued animals in Indonesia in a sustainable way.
Volunteering & Interns for the Sustainability Program
Currently, we are looking for volunteers interested in learning about tropical organic food production and soil restoration. The Farm volunteer will work as a member of our small farm team, taking direction and working alongside our Sustainability Program Manager and Assistant Farm Manager in all aspects of production, from seed to harvest, with the addition of farm improvement projects, including but not limited to water pump installation and the building of farm structures.
