Danau Sentarum: Where a new approach begins

The efforts of a project by CIFOR and local NGO Riak Bumi funded by the Great Ape Conservation Fund and the US Fish and Wildlife Service in the Danau Sentarum National Park in West Kalimantan, aims at raising conservation awareness and provide policy research to significantly reduce the current rate of deforestation and land conversion and secure long-term protection for the remaining orangutan population. The project — spanning 3 years — incorporates local communities, governments as well as the National Park Authority to educate the local people and government personnel.
