Promising news from Heart of Borneo
Over 50,000 trees have been planted across 300,000 hectares as part of a restoration project in the Heart of Borneo, Asia’s last great rainforest and a WWF priority area. Using local knowledge families from three villages created a forested corridor between two national parks. A WWF field school on sustainable farming encouraged collaborative problem solving. The project aims to take pressure off natural forest, which includes important orang-utan habitat, and help secure freshwater supplies.
