The Tuke Rainforest Conservancy is WildArk’s second biodiversity project deep in the rainforests of the Nakanai Mountains on the island of New Britain, Papua New Guinea (PNG). WildArk is working with the Baia Sports Fishing Lodge to protect the Tuke community and their home from illegal logging and palm oil plantations that threaten not only their livelihood but the rich biodiversity of the forests in which they have lived and preserved for thousands of years.

The Tuke Story

In August 2016, three members of the Tuke community set out on a journey from their village in the Nakanai Mountains of New Britain in Papua New Guinea to the town of Kimbe on the coast on a critical mission.
