No Roads Through The Kerinci Seblat National Park
The Kerinci Seblat National Park, which spans four provinces on Sumatra island, is home to an estimated 190 Critically Endandgered Sumatran Tigers.
The Kerinci Sablat National Park is also home to critically endangered Sumatran rhinoceros, elephants, clouded leopards, sun bears and more than 370 bird species.
The road building would be disastrous to one of the core tiger habitats in Asia and The plans for four roads through the park would open up previously inaccessible land to villagers and illegal loggers, divide breeding grounds and movement corridors, and destroy vulnerable ecosystems
I urge the Indonesian Minister of Forestry to NOT give the green light of approval to the proposed road projects in the Kerinci Seblat National Park, and request that the Indonesian Government protect it's national parks and commit to on going conservation programs.
