A community conservation initiative to help protect the threatened and globally significant Leuser Ecosystem in North Sumatra. Sumatran Ranger Project supports forest edge communities to reduce harmful activity and implement alternative livelihoods, mitigate human-wildlife conflict, carry out anti-poaching ranger patrols and manages a number of camera traps in the buffer zone outside the Gunung Leuser National Park, collecting data on the biodiversity utilising areas close to human settlement.
