Conservation Camp Construction

In Central Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo) Feb 2008

Working closely with local villagers COP are
planting thousands of trees and building a
Conservation Camp which will used as a base
and a deterrent to illegal loggers and palm
oil companies. The forest concerned is home to
some 50 orangutans and was being cut down until COP
and local villagers made very strong, vocal protests
to the government.
