Driving Grassroots Conservation

As 2021 ramps up, we wanted to take some time and say thank you to everyone who has supported us. Let's reflect on some of the amazing things YOU enabled us to do this past year. 

 

  • We launched a brand new project site in Gunung Naning, expanding total program reach to over 710,000 hectares of conserved natural habitat. Read more.
  • Community partners patrolled over a total of 3200 kilometers in both marine and terrestrial environments. This distance is like walking from San Diego to Los Angeles, California every single month!!!
  • We distributed over $100,000 US dollars to families in need of economic relief in response to COVID-19. Read More. This year, we expanded our Community Health Program from only one village in 2019 to all partner villages in 2020, reflecting our dedication to planetary health.
  • We expanded our village partnerships and worked alongside over 26,000 individuals.
  • Our 2020 data revealed a 39% drop in exploitative activity across our project sites. This reveals that despite the prediction that COVID-19 would elicit higher rates of natural resource exploitation across the world, our conservation model continues to deliver results.
  • Working with communities, we saw over 15,000 trees planted in terrestrial landscapes and over 18,200 mangrove seedlings in coastal habitats.
  • Our climate-smart agriculture program helped farmer groups harvest over 3,000 kilograms of organic vegetables Borneo’s largest periodic fishing closure was implemented by 6 villages that banded together to support sustainable small-scale fisheries
  • Our team published new research providing evidence of the significant positive impacts for our holistic approach for people and nature.

As 2021 ramps up, our team is working hard. Our model for community-led land and seascape management is being adopted across Indonesian Borneo. In fact, in some ways it has gone viral. 

 

Stay tuned for the next report as we discuss what amazing impact has been generated in the first few months of 2021. Our team will stop at nothing to conserve our planet through people-centered approaches. 

 

Regards,

 

Planet Indonesia team
