Conservation in action

On the trail of the illegal loggers and palm oil companies - sometimes
one of the same thing.

The state of the land, once primary forest, is clearly visible. COP team members are now able to more quickly and less dangerously patrol the perimeter of the Cempaga forest - itself some two hours over rough tracks from the nearest main road. In the rainy season the tracks are horrendous and almost impassable.
