Summary:  

Harapan Rainforest (HRF) is a post-logging lowland rainforest in Sumatra. It encompasses an IBA, represents a critically endangered ecosystem, and hosts a pioneering conservation program. Our project proposes a set of activities welcomed by HRF management to assist its on-going conservation efforts. We will: 1) conduct intensive avian sampling in focal areas within HRF to substantially supplement baseline data collection and lay a solid basis for future monitoring; 2) provide professional training to patrol staff to facilitate capacity building in biological monitoring techniques; 3) establish and run a mobile library for local community children and provide augmenting activities to promote environmental awareness.
