The Leuser Ecosystem - World Heritage Protection, or destroyed forever?!

The Leuser Ecosystem ( often referred to just as ‘KEL’ ) is the last place on earth where Tigers, Orangutans, Elephants and Rhinos roam together in the wild. In total, it’s 2.6 million hectares of protected forests, of which 80% and the vast majority of Sumatra’s remaining biodiversity is in the Province of Aceh, Sumatra Indonesia.

RIGHT NOW, THE ACEH GOVERNOR IS BEING PRESSURED TO SIGN A NEW LAW THAT WILL DESTROY THIS FOREVER – WE MUST SUPPORT HIM TO MAKE A GOOD DECISION

Please sign and share this urgent petition today.  Never underestimate the impact you can make to help save the people and biodiversity of Aceh.
