This is Ari, the manager of our forest restoration site at Besitang, North Sumatra - as you can see, our tree seedlings are growing really well! In the background you can see some oil palms - these were illegally planted in the national park, and we're gradually cutting them down and replacing them with rainforest tree seedlings. As you can see from this little film, taken with camera traps at this site, wildlife is starting to return to the area: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3bk4eDjA7U Thank you so much for donating to this project - we love sharing these successes with our supporters.
