Location: Harapan rainforest camp, Jambi province, Sumatra, Indonesia
Harapan Rainforest is one of the most important conservation projects in the world. Located on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, it protects around 20% of the remaining dry lowland forests of Sumatra, whose area fell from 16 million hectares in 1900 to less than half a million today. It is production forest, managed under innovative ecosystem restoration licences. Management, in collaboration with local community, government and NGO partners, ensures that the forest continues to support a wide range of threatened plants and animals and provides a range of essential environmental services and enhanced livelihoods for present and future generations. The management rights to Harapan Rainforest have been secured for a period of 100 years by a consortium which includes the RSPB. The RSPB contributes to forest management, planning, research and advocacy work, biodiversity surveying and monitoring, communications and fundraising.
