On April 11, 2018, our partner organization YHUA acquired the complete SMART PATROL government license, including the necessary signature from Jakarta, which officially allows us to monitor and guard the NP Gunung Leuser between Bukit Lawang and Berastagi for the period of two years.
An extraordinary way of protecting the most endangered animal species with a focus on Sumatran tigers is waiting for us. Our great task is also to monitor and protect the Sumatran elephants and the unspeakable dream of documenting the Sumatran rhinoceros.
All the data obtained will be passed to the NPGL Administration in Medan, and our work will serve to detect and suppress poaching activities.
We would like to thank to all sponsors of photo traps, including 33 NEPZ partner schools that have their school photo traps in the Tiger Eye program. Big thanks you goes to the sponsors FOTOPAST.CZ and ARMED s.r.o., who have been supporting us in our monitoring activities in the rainforest and guard activities in the Green Life reserve and the National Park for two years.
We are now opening the gate to the official protection of NP Gunung Leuser and its unique fauna. At the same time, there is the possibility of further international cooperation with the International Ranger Federation. Currently, we are waiting for the membership which we should be granted in the upcoming months.
If you are interested in sponsoring this anti-poaching path, you and your business are welcome to do so.
