What We Do

  • Community training to increase capacity in NTFP development related to production and quality as an economically- and environmentally- such as training on sustainable honey harvesting and hygienic post-harvest processes, training on tengkawang  oil production, training on forest fruit processing, and strengthening community group organizations.
  • Participatory reforestation in forest-fire sites with local species utilized by wild honey bees and plant enrichment as fodder for wildlife, and agroforestry lands such as planting tengkawang and other forest fruits, intercropping agricultural crops such as rubber, coffee, palm trees, and others.
  • Forest fire prevention through raising awareness about the dangers of fire through prevention efforts, fire fighting training, providing fire fighting equipment, forming and strengthening community groups concerned with fire, and strengthening customary rules with active participation from the community.
  • Development and market access of potential green products to increase people's income, such as forest honey, handicraft (baskets and mats woven from natural fibers and traditional woven cloth), illipe butter products, forest fruit products, freshwater fish products, and community-based tourism - socially and environmentally responsible.
  • Education and public outreach to disseminate information, knowledge, and experience more broadly through hybrid meetings, and printing and digital media, such as bulletins, leaflets, manuals, social media platforms, websites, and workshops to raise awareness of the importance of orangutans and wildlife, the dangers of fire, waste management, etc.
  • Strengthening of customary law or local rules in the management of conservation areas (work with government agencies and local communities): documentation of customary laws and local rules in sustainable natural resource management, redefining borders and regulations that are compatible with community welfare and environmental conservation
  • Actively participate in the planning and implementation of the management of Danau Sentarum National Park in a collaborative manner with stakeholders and especially by involving local communities, for example through facilitation of planning and monitoring from the Danau Sentarum Water Catchment Area Forum, the Labian Leboyan Watershed Community Forum.
  • Studies and follow-up action on the social economic and environmental impacts of activities around DSNP on wetlands and watershed conservation: land conversion (large-scale monoculture plantation, mining, logging) legal and illegal, forest fires, environmental pollution, NTFP potential, orangutan population and distribution
  • Encouraging Social Forestry schemes: Facilitating the process of applying for customary forests for communities around the Danau Sentarum National Park area, so that communities can manage customary areas and utilize natural resources legally with their traditional knowledge.
