There has been enormous progress made on behalf of the Leuser Ecosystem, both in raising international understanding of the importance of preserving its forests and in pressuring the major corporate players involved to accept responsibility and begin to take action. But the fact remains: forests are still falling and the Leuser Ecosystem is still shrinking. Corporate policies and government regulations are only as good as their follow through—rigorous enforcement is key to stopping the chainsaws and bulldozers from continuing their relentless push into this region’s remaining rainforests.
This is why RAN has created Leuser Watch—a watchdog site for alerts about ongoing destruction taking place within the Leuser Ecosystem as well as a clearinghouse for news on select Leuser-related conservation developments.
