What an amazing experience to be this close to a critically endangered species.
The last few days I went with the @sumatranrangerproject rangers to a local community on the edge of the #leuserecosystem, where they were having a problem with a herd of elephants coming into their oil palm plantations and doing some damage.
Although it was incredible to see wild Sumatran elephants it was also upsetting to see them in the plantations, that was once their forest home.
Human-elephant conflicts happen throughout elephant ranges. But with only around 1200 Sumatran elephants left in the wild, every animal counts.
Elephants are poisoned and shot in Indonesia for their tusks and for retaliation attacks after they damage the communities livelihoods.
Elephants play a significant role in the jungle ecosystem. Creating pathways through the jungle and dispersing seeds far and wide to help keep the jungle healthy.
These elephants are important not only to Sumatra but to the world. As the jungle disappears so does their home. We can’t let them disappear to.
Coexistence is the key!
----------------------------------------------------
Please shape your support to the amazing community rangers at the @sumatranrangerproject.
And support other awesome orgs trying to protect Sumatran elephants and their habitats:

The Leuser Ecosystem is the last place on earth you can find critically endangered elephants, orangutans, tigers and rhinos all in the same area.

Our Tigers create magical moments for guests and help form deep connections with nature's primal guardians ,this is instrumental in helping us the http://RareSpeciesFund.org to reach deep into one of the last “wild” places on Earth and stand with local heroes to protect our cousins of the forest. We stand with our last remaining family in their nearly extinct “wild” homes: Elephants, Rhinos, Tigers, Chimpanzees, Orangutans and Gorillas. Deep gratitude to our staff, animal ambassadors and you, our supporters, who have given selflessly to rebuild ;re-open & re-man Soraya ranger station in all it's glory to defend one of the last precious pieces of our world's unique wildlife systems the “Leuser “#saveleuserecosystem ❤️‼️

Salvadori's Nightjar (Caprimulgus pulchellus) is restricted to Sumatra (South Barisan Mountains) and Java, Indonesia. It occurs in montane and submontane forest at 800-2,100 m, but perhaps only up to 1,800 m.

This species is listed as Near Threatened because there are some indications that it has a moderately small population that may be undergoing a continuing decline owing to forest loss. It is likely to be moderately secure in small numbers at higher elevations, but losing habitat and populations at lower levels where encroachment is occurring.

@celinaxchien for @rainforestalliance and @rainforestactionnetwork: The Leuser Ecosystem, the last place on Earth where tigers, rhinos, elephants, and orangutans co-exist in the wild. One of its greatest threats is the proposed construction of the 173m high Tampur megadam close to the small village of Lesten. Last year, I traveled to the proposed location of the dam; previously warned by locals that even the nearest village was very remote, I didn't expect to reach my destination easily. To my shock, I was met with slash-and-burn deforestation and a dirt road leading straight from the city to the riverside village of Pining. The dense forest that I expected from researched Google Earth images had been leveled in the short time since they were taken. Although the destruction was severe downstream, the long canoe journey upstream into the steep and mountainous region of the dam site showed there was still a substantial amount of pristine rainforest to be protected. There was still a battle to be won. .

If this megadam project is to go forward, 4,000 hectares of this rainforest will be flooded, including Lesten village. It will invite catastrophic deforestation, extensive road construction, power line installation and human encroachment; all paving the way to further forest exploitation by agriculture, infrastructure and wildlife crime. The Tampur dam will displace 60 families, put 250,000 people downstream at risk of impoverishment and destructive flooding, and devastate some of the last lowland rainforests of South East Asia. Ultimately, it will destroy the Lesten river system, its biodiversity and all the neighbouring communities who rely on it for their livelihoods.

This is why we need you to #riseagainstextinction next week at our annual fundraiser in #hollywood @novacancyla Thank you @#paulhiltonphoto This is Bunta the critically endangered Sumatra elephant that has helped the conservation of wild elephants of the Leuser Ecosystem for many years, Sumatra, Indonesia. Bunta was part of a Conversation Respone Unit, CRU based in East Aceh, with his mahout, Abdullah. This team helped prevent human-elephant conflict, by driving wild elephants away from community. Bunta and Abdullah had formed a special bond, as other mahouts couldn’t control Bunta. Some people do not agree with people riding elephants 🐘 but it’s the reality on the ground right now. Bunta and Abdullah had a special relationship. Sadly recently Bunta was poisoned and one of his tusks removed by poachers. friends at @haka_sumatra have offered a reward for any information leading to the arrest of anybody involved in the killing. In a promising sign of support, the Aceh governor has just match the reward! It time to make a stance against wildlife crimes!

The plan to build the Lesten-Tampur hydrodam is a catastrophic project threatening communities and biodiversity and would destroy 4,000 hectares of #rhino and other endangered species habitat inside the Leuser Ecosystem. .
Act Now to Protect the Leuser Ecosystem, sign this petition asking the Aceh and Indonesian governments to reconsider this misguided project! www.lovetheleuser.org/tampurhydrodam

The beautiful Leuser Ecosystem on Sumatra, Indonesia in all her glory.

We all have a responsibility to protect all these systems, to sustain life as we know it!
.
Ecosystems support all life on earth, biodiversity creates the building blocks of these ecosystems.
.
Every living species has a roll to play, without them the system will collapse.
.
Don’t forget to look around and appreciate and never take for granted the biodiversity that surrounds you 😉

At 6.5 million acres, the Leuser Ecosystem is a world unto itself—a rich and verdant expanse of intact tropical lowland rainforests, cloud draped mountains and steamy peatlands. It is among the most biodiverse and ancient ecosystems ever documented by science, and it is the last place where Sumatran #orangutans, #elephants, #tigers, #rhinos and #sunbears still roam side by side.
.
But the Leuser Ecosystem exists at a tenuous crossroads. Despite being protected under Indonesian national law, massive industrial development for palm oil, pulp and paper plantations and mining threaten the entire ecosystem

Selamat pagi! Mau pergi kemana dan naik apa hari ini? Mobil? Transjakarta? Gojek? MRT? LRT? Kalau Ibu ini hanya bisa menggunakan sampan untuk pergi dari satu desa ke desa lain.
.
.
Warga desa Tampur Boor mengandalkan sungai sebagai jalur transportasi mereka. Kalau sungai kering pasti sampan mereka kandas, dan tidak jarang harus didorong. Terlepas dari kebutuhan utama mereka pada akses ke pendidikan dan kesehatan, pemerintah daerah berencana membangun bendungan 428-megawatt di dalam Ekosistem Leuser dengan membanjiri 4.000 hektar hutan lindung dan membangun jalur transmisi tegangan tinggi. Rencana untuk membendung sungai ini akan menghancurkan habitat utama satwa liar di dalam ekosistem, terutama orangutan, gajah dan harimau Sumatra yang kini terancam punah.

Ok here we go again, it’s a busy week. The latest, and largest, threat facing the Leuser Ecosystem is the proposed Lesten-Tampur hydrodam. If built, its 175 metre-high wall would destroy prime habitat for Sumatran elephants and dam life-giving rivers, holding millions of tonnes of water in a location known for potential earthquakes and tsunamis and placing 250,000 citizens that live upstream at risk of a man-made disaster. Sign the petition now. Link in bio - @paulhiltonphoto

Since the launch of the #LoveTheLeuser movement we have stopped another major threat facing this global biodiversity hotspot––the Kappi geothermal project that located in the heart of Leuser Ecosystem.

Looking out across hectare after hectare of oil palm plantation hard up against the Gunung Leuser National Park, some of it illegally planted within, yet it still remains (although unproductive where we were). On a positive note, no snares were found in the usual areas just outside the National Park today and there has been a significant reduction in the areas we patrol. Long live the #leuser #ecosystem

Part 1 of 3 (Click the link in my bio for the full coverage). The investigative series Indonesia for Sale, launching this week on @MONGABAY, shines new light on the corruption behind Indonesia’s deforestation and land rights crisis.

In-depth stories, to be released over the coming months, will expose the role of collusion between palm oil firms and politicians in subverting Indonesia’s democracy. They will be published in English and Indonesian.

The series is the product of nine months’ reporting across the country, interviewing fixers, middlemen, lawyers and companies involved in land deals, and those most affected by them.

Indonesia for Sale is a collaboration between @Mongabay and The Gecko Project(facebook.com/thegeckoproject.org), an investigative reporting initiative established by UK-based nonprofit Earthsight (https://www.earthsight.org.uk/) Link: https://news.mongabay.com/2017/10/indonesia-for-sale-in-depth-series-on-corruption-palm-oil-and-rainforests-starts-tomorrow/

Part 3 of 3 (Click the link in my bio for the full coverage). The investigative series Indonesia for Sale, launching this week on @MONGABAY, shines new light on the corruption behind Indonesia’s deforestation and land rights crisis.

In-depth stories, to be released over the coming months, will expose the role of collusion between palm oil firms and politicians in subverting Indonesia’s democracy. They will be published in English and Indonesian.

The series is the product of nine months’ reporting across the country, interviewing fixers, middlemen, lawyers and companies involved in land deals, and those most affected by them.

Indonesia for Sale is a collaboration between @Mongabay and The Gecko Project(facebook.com/thegeckoproject.org), an investigative reporting initiative established by UK-based nonprofit Earthsight (https://www.earthsight.org.uk/) Link: https://news.mongabay.com/2017/10/indonesia-for-sale-in-depth-series-on-corruption-palm-oil-and-rainforests-starts-tomorrow/

The Lesten river of the Leuser Ecosystem in Sumatra, Indonesia; the last place on Earth where tigers, rhinos, elephants, and orangutans co-exist in the wild. This extraordinary rainforest is threatened by the combined destructive forces of oil palm agricultural expansion, rampant poaching and human encroachment. It's current major threat is the proposed construction of the 173m high Tampur mega-dam on this river. Neighbouring communities and NGOs are now working together to pressure local government and stop this project from going forward. You can help by signing the petition at lovetheleuser.org/tampurhydrodam and spreading the word! -------------------------------------------------

@celinaxchien for @rainforestalliance: Hello everyone! My name is Celina Chien and I'm an photojournalist and conservationist. I am thrilled to be taking over the @rainforestalliance account this week to share my work in the tropics documenting endangered biodiversity in ever-shrinking habitats. My travels in search of environmental issues have taken me all over the world, but this week I want to share with you all the beautiful, unique and dwindling wildlife of Madagascar, Ecuador, Colombia and Indonesia.

Pictured here is Lesten river of the Leuser Ecosystem of Sumatra, Indonesia; the last place on Earth where tigers, rhinos, elephants, and orangutans co-exist in the wild. This extraordinary rainforest is threatened by the combined destructive forces of oil palm agricultural expansion, rampant poaching and human encroachment. It's current major threat is the proposed construction of the 173m high Tampur mega-dam on this river.

The river of life in Tangkahan, North Sumatra.
Millions of people rely on the fast flowing rivers that run through the Leuser ecosystem for their livelihoods, agriculture and for their clean water.
It was amazing to see so many people come to the river to just enjoy their day, using the rubber tubes to float down the river.
The Leuser is one of the most important habitats in the whole of Indonesia as it’s the last place where you can find critically endangered elephants, organutans, tigers and rhinos coexisting. As well as pangolins, sun bears, clouded leopards, hornbills and many more.
Yet it is under threat due to deforestation, poaching and the palm oil plantations. One of the big threats in the heart of the Leuser is the proposed hydroelectric dam in the Aceh province, that is meant to be built that can flood a 4000 hectare area of jungle and can effect all the wildlife and the millions of people that rely on river for their daily lives.
It will cut through critical Sumatran elephant migration routes, and considering there is only around 1200 left in the wild every animal matters.
With such a biodiverse place like the Leuser it really needs all the help it can get. It’s such an amazing place, full of life. I’m so glad I’ve had the opportunity to walk there and hopefully I am able to do it for many years to come!

This incredible male Sumatran orangutan sits on his branch and alarm calls, as he’s to large to move swiftly around the canopy.
Walking with the @sumatranrangerproject, thanks to @rawildlife, through the pristine jungles of the Leuser ecosystem in North Sumatra was an incredible experience.
Seeing this big male and several other females with young, moving around the canopy in a frenzy because of our presents.
Orangutans and almost every other species that calls the rainforests in Indonesia is in a rapid decline due to rampant deforestation.
In Borneo, since 1999 they have lost over 150,000 orangutans, which is just sickening. The Sumatran orangutans only number around 7000.
These are highly intelligent animals that deserve to have a future in the Indonesian jungle.
The Leuser ecosystem is a fragile place that is suffering. It’s a UNESCO world heritage site that the Indonesian government needs to do more to protect.
I hope to have many more incredible experiences with these guys in the very near future!

UPDATE ARRESTED!
Following investigation conducted by a special team the police arrested two people for killing an elephant belonging to the Conservation Response Unit in June 2018. The police also seized elephant ivory measuring 120 centimeters in height.
ISWMP team salutes efforts made by Indonesian police as well as special on ground teams to bring perpetrators to justice and hope that we can protect remaining Sumatra’s elephants from facing extreme threat of immediate extinction.
Last week, this magnificent bull elephant was deliberately poisoned by poachers and his tusk horrifically removed from his lifeless body 😢

Our friends at @haka_sumatra together with local partners have offered a reward for any information leading to the arrest of the person behind this.

In a promising sign of support the Aceh governor has just matched this reward!!!!!!👍👍 It is time to make an example of the greed driven, heartless ‘humans’ (?) who are driving this species to extinction.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!! In the name of Bunta, let’s hope the precedent can be set! 💔

A number of people believe that the Orangutan population has doubled in recent years. This is a mistake to be repeating, it is wrong, and it is not productive when it comes to conservation efforts.

The population did not double. That would mean that the population was growing. It is not growing. There are just possibly more than previously thought: 'The Sumatran population estimate grew mainly because Wich’s team found orangutans in places they hadn’t looked before, such as at higher elevations, in logged forests, and in a remote area west of Lake Toba.' If the population had doubled it would mean the species was reproducing at a much faster rate than they are dying. They are still disappearing at an alarming rate.

According to the Biruté Mary Galdikas,“I don’t think this changes the conservation picture all that much. The threats are the same as what they were before,” she says. “In the end, it’s not the absolute numbers that matter, but how fast they are disappearing.” So while there could be up to 14,600 orangutans when previous estimates were between 6,000 and 7,000, the reality is that orangutans are still critically endangered and quickly vanishing.

The price that these poor animals pay for this horrific coffee is so much bigger than the money people pay.
Have your coffe #crueltyfree ☕️💚
Never buy Kopi Luwak or #CivetCoffee and spread the word; tell the world that the wildlife trade in all its forms is cruel and threatens biodiversity. We must confront the demand, educate the public and pressure governments to introduce and enforce their wildlife laws.
Captured from the wild, isolated in battery cages and force-fed nothing but coffee cherries, Asian Palm Civets are subjected to horrific conditions across South East Asia for the production of #KopiLuwak, the world’s most expensive coffee. The beans ferment as they pass through the civet's digestive system, and the prized results are selected from their faeces. This poor civet was up for sale in a rotting cage on the streets of Medan, Indonesia.
.
The trade in wild animals is not only a moral and ethical issue concerning the suffering of its living victims, but also a conservation crisis. Many, if not all, of the animals in this market originated from the neighbouring Leuser Ecosystem, one of the largest intact rainforests of South East Asia and is the last place on Earth where critically endangered elephants, tigers, rhinos and orangutans still coexist in the wild. Populations of a diversity of species are crashing due to the combined destructive forces of habitat destruction and animal extraction for the wildlife trade. The moral corruption that allows this industry to thrive off the exploitation of endangered and tormented animals must stop if their wild counterparts are to survive into the next decade.

Urgent! We are starting to identify dogs we can assist with medical treatment in the forest edge villages we currently teach English lessons in. I have just received these photos from Sumatra and need help to buy flea, worm and mange treatments to assist these dogs! They have owners who care about them but don’t have any access to treatments for them. We have so far been helping with medicated baths but we can not treat all the dogs this way as some do not want to be handled, the handsome long haired dog in the photos managed to run away half way through his bath 😞
A $20 donation will treat one dog for 3 months for mange, fleas and worms.

Why save the Orangutans? Saving this keystone species goes beyond just saving them .As orangutans disappear, it signals the disappearance of thousands of other animals and plant species in fragile tropical rain forest habitats. Conversely, by saving orangutans and their habitats, we save those same species that co-exist with them.Borneo is home to 15000 species of flowering plants, 3000 species of trees, 221 species of mammals, 420 resident birds and 440 freshwater fish species!

Weekly field update from conservation photojournalist @paulhiltonphoto: ・・・
Ok here we go again, it’s a busy week. The latest, and largest, threat facing the Leuser Ecosystem is the proposed Lesten-Tampur hydrodam. If built, its 175 metre-high wall would destroy prime habitat for Sumatran elephants and dam life-giving rivers, holding millions of tonnes of water in a location known for potential earthquakes and tsunamis and placing 250,000 citizens that live upstream at risk of a man-made disaster. Sign the petition now. Link in @paulhiltonphoto bio.
Since the launch of the #LoveTheLeuser movement we have stopped another major threat facing this global biodiversity hotspot––the Kappi geothermal project that located in the heart of Leuser Ecosystem. With your help, we will contribute again. Come on guys. It’s take a 2 minutes out of your day. #saveleuserecosystem #lovetheleuser #cutconflictpalmoil #racingextinction #Repost @racingextinction with @insta.save.repost • • •

Earlier this week we took a group of local kids into the forest to trial an idea for a local education program. Many of these kids and even one of the adults had never been into the forest even though this is their backyard. They saw three orangutans, also a first. Addressing this nature deficit disorder will become another focus for us in the coming months as it is vital to the success of conservation efforts not only in the Leuser Ecosystem but globally. Thanks to @kylienewlands for your donation to facilitate this.

from the #LoveTheLeuser Ecosystem movement and then take action to stop the Tampur hydrodam from destroying over 10k acres of primary rainforest and threatening 250k Indonesians who live downstream! www.lovetheleuser.org/TampurHydrodam. Kami butuh dukungan Anda untuk meyakinkan Pemerintah Provinsi Aceh dan Pemerintah Nasional Indonesia menghentikan proyek PLTA Lesten-Tampur karena wilayah ini merupakan sumber kehidupan yang penting bagi pencaharian masyarakat setempat dan kemakmuran ekonomi Aceh.

We are based in the only place in the world where all these species co-exist! How lucky are we! The Tiger, Orangutan, Rhino and Elephant all share the habitat of the magnificent Gunung Leuser ecosystem in Sumatra. All of these species are on the brink of extinction due to habitat loss and poaching, with approximately only 120 tigers living in Leuser.

When I discovered this today I was so happy I bought every flavor. It's basically #Italian made @Nutella without the #palmoil (that big green label means "No palm oil.") I have searched high and low in the states and no one has a #Nutella substitute without palm oil, not even boutique grocers. Tell me what American company would market a product with this slogan. #Glutenfree Sugar Free, #Organic, non-GMO, sure...but only because those labels make them money, not because they care...#lesigh... things are just better in Europe 🇮🇹 #saynotopalmoil #conservation #stoptheburn

🔁 @rainforestactionnetwork: Show you #LoveTheLeuser Ecosystem by calling on the local Governments of Aceh and Indonesia to revoke licenses and permits for the Lesten-Tampur hydrodam that would cause the destruction of the Leuser Ecosystem and put the people of Aceh and Indonesia at risk of disaster.

Ok aquí vamos otra vez, es una semana ocupada. La amenaza más reciente y más grande que enfrenta el ecosistema de Leuser es la propuesta hidrovía de Lesten-Tampur. Si se construyera, su muro de 175 metros de altura destruiría el hábitat principal para elefantes de Sumatra y ríos dadores de vida, con millones de toneladas de agua en un lugar conocido por terremotos y tsunamis potenciales y colocando a 250,000 ciudadanos que viven corriente arriba en riesgo de un hombre hecho desastre Firme la petición ahora. Enlace en mi biografía
Desde el lanzamiento del movimiento #LoveTheLeuser, hemos detenido otra gran amenaza que enfrenta este punto de acceso a la biodiversidad mundial: el proyecto geotérmico Kappi que se encuentra en el corazón del ecosistema de Leuser. Con tu ayuda, contribuiremos de nuevo. Vamos chicos. Es tomar 2 minutos de tu día. #saveleuserecosystem #lovetheleuser #cutconflictpalmoil
