Fauna & Flora is collaborating with communities, local government, conservation agencies and rangers to protect threatened wildlife in Sumatra’s Northern Aceh Forest Complex.
Our work in Northern Aceh
Under the MoU with the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Fauna & Flora has established close partnerships with Aceh’s Provincial Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BKSDA), Forest Management Units (KPHs), community rangers and the provincial government to protect and monitor the Northern Aceh Forest Complex and its biodiversity.
We are conducting routine SMART-based patrols, implementing effective and fast responses to mitigate human-wildlife conflict and combating illegal wildlife trade. We regularly conduct biodiversity monitoring to assess wildlife population trends, especially for key subspecies such as the Sumatran tiger and Sumatran elephant.
Fauna & Flora is also collaborating with communities from villages within the Northern Aceh Forest Complex to maintain forest cover and conserve its biodiversity through a village forest scheme.
