Project - Exploration

Sumatra has suffered extreme exploitation of its natural resources, an increasing human population in Indonesia means that there is a growing demand on the countries natural resources and land for the development of palm oil plantations and other farming and mining practices.

The national parks which should be protected have experienced severe encroachment from illegal logging companies. The smaller parks face more of this threat as there is little protection in the form of guards to patrol the area. Already 80% of these natural forests have been exploited. Although the government of Indonesia is committed to conservation it also needs to grow its economy, however Sumatra’s abundant, natural resources have yet to benefit the country as a whole.

HAWCS aim is to enable dialogue with the Indonesian Government of Sumatra to discuss along with other NGO’s the protection and conservation of the National Parks such as those in Jambi and Aceh.

HAWCS aims are to further develop not only the environmental education pertaining to the rights of the indigenous community but also to expand on the importance of protecting, conserving and preserving the biodiversity contained within the forests.
