  • Status: not yet begun
  • The purpose of this project is to establish 6,000 hectares of a larger forest concession (16,400 ha) for the Taman Raja Nature Preserve, and to create a wildlife corridor linking the preserve to Bukit Tigapuluh National Park.
  • The area considered has been deforested due to encroachment, burning, poaching and illegal logging.
  • Because of political pressure for reforestation, the Asian Pulp and Paper company is required to develop and maintain a wildlife corridor on some of the areas on their land.
  • This corridor is for Sumatran tigers and other wildlife in the region.
  • The entire concession has 6,800 ha inhabited by several local communities.
