I'm in love with the forest. I want to protect it.


Muktar was an illegal logger in the Ulu Masen forest, in Indonesia's Aceh province, for over 10 years before retraining as a ranger. Audio slideshow by Abbie Trayler Smith/Panos Pictures.

Thanks to a project run by the NGO Fauna and Flora International, (partially funded by UKaid from the Department for International Development, in conjunction with the World Bank's Multi Donor Fund), young men from local villages are being trained to work as forestry rangers. Many of them have previously been involved in illegal logging.

FFI are also working to help community members understand how to best protect the forest whilst providing economic benefits and and livelihood opportunities to local communities.

The Aceh Forest and Environment Project protects the Leuser and Ulu Masen forest ecosystems form illegal logging. The 3.3 million hectare area in the northern part of Aceh province, is the largest contiguous forested area in South East Asia. It is seen as a rich provider of environmental and economic benefits for the 2 million people living in Aceh.
