Partner Spotlight

Simon Fenwick is a visionary supporter of our complex work with orangutans in Indonesia. Simon’s relationship with WWF-Australia started in 2017 and has grown to see him become a highly committed partner in our long-term strategic work. Simon explains why he got involved. 


“My interest began in 1995, when I watched a documentary on logging in Indonesia. I saw the forest encroachment and the terrible impact that had on orangutans. I sat there and for the first time in my life, I felt genuinely helpless. I didn’t have any money at the time. I was broke. But I’d made up my mind. If I was ever fortunate to have some money, and if this issue was still going, I would get involved. So, fast forward 23 years. I sold out of my business. I was still interested in Indonesia and I thought, who are the people that I can partner with? I looked at a couple of options, but I trusted the WWF brand. I came in and spoke with the WWF team. We went through the situation and that unleashed a series of follow-on conversations that taught me more about what was occurring there. I visited the local team in Indonesia. The high level of planning and accountability WWF displayed there gave me the confidence to commit to the project.”
