Gunung Nyiut Penrissen Forest Complex

This 180,000 ha landscape of primary rainforest is one of Planet Indonesia’s flagship sites. Hosting a 1700 meter inactive volcano this area is home to some of the world’s most rare and endangered species. Since 2015 Planet Indonesia has been working with Indigenous Dayak communities to co-manage this reserve with government agencies. We have seen a 77% reduction in forest loss and improvements in local livelihoods, health, education, and farming practices. This area is also home to Pondok Tagong, Planet Indonesia’s biodiversity and hornbill research station.
