Leuser Ecosystem

Indonesia is ranked as the third largest rainforest in the world. One of them is the Leuser Ecosystem. Leuser rainforest straddles between the provinces of Aceh and North Sumatra. Covers more than 2.6 million hectares of lowland rainforests, peat swamps, montane and coastal forests and alpine meadows, the Leuser Ecosystem becomes a home to endemic flora and fauna, including five felid species.

Those felid species are Sumatran tiger, clouded leopard, marbled cat, golden cat, and leopard cat. However, illegal logging activity, poachers, and deforestation are the major causes of population decline. One of many ways that we can do to support the conservation of wild cats and the Leuser ecosystem is by sharing information about how important the forest, providing the habitat for animals and also a livelihood for us.
