The Leuser Ecosystem  - World Heritage Protection, or destroyed forever?!

The Leuser Ecosystem ( often referred to just as ‘KEL’ ) is the last place on earth where Tigers, Orangutans, Elephants and Rhinos roam together in the wild. In total, it’s 2.6 million hectares of protected forests, of which 80% and the vast majority of Sumatra’s remaining biodiversity is in the Province of Aceh, Sumatra Indonesia.

RIGHT NOW, THE ACEH GOVERNOR IS BEING PRESSURED TO SIGN A NEW LAW THAT WILL DESTROY THIS FOREVER – WE MUST SUPPORT HIM TO MAKE A GOOD DECISION

For the Acehnese, The Leuser Ecosystem provides a source of clean water for at least 4 million people in the region as a downstream irrigation, agriculture , and food sources . The Leuser Ecosystem also provides environmental services to the people of Aceh through prevention of erosion, flooding, landslides and spread of pests. For national and international community, The Leuser Ecosystem has an important role as a regulator of climate and carbon storage.

The Leuser Ecosystem was recently mentioned in the article published by the International Journal of Science, as one of the " irreplaceable " protected areas in the world and is now being promoted by leading scientists around the world to be included as a UNESCO World Heritage Area.

This petition will be addressed to Dr . Zaini Abdullah , Governor of Aceh as the leader of Aceh to show the world that the decisions it does greatly affect the lives of many people.

Please sign and share this urgent petition today.  Never underestimate the impact you can make to help save the people and biodiversity of Aceh.
