Leuser Ecosystem, as the last place where Sumatran orangutan, tiger, rhino and elephant still roam together, side by side. It also has one of the world’s richest yet least-known forest systems and its vegetation is an important source of Earth’s oxygen. Despite of these amazing fact about Leuser, however a great damaged is haunted the sustainability of it on daily basis.
The latest, and largest, threat facing the Leuser Ecosystem now is the proposed Lesten-Tampur hydrodam. If built, its 175 metre-high wall would destroy prime habitat for Sumatran elephants and dam life-giving rivers, holding millions of tonnes of water in a location known for potential earthquakes and tsunamis and placing 250,000 citizens that live in the region at risk of a man-made disaster.
Show you #LoveTheLeuser Ecosystem by calling on the local Governments of Aceh and Indonesia to revoke licenses and permits for the Lesten-Tampur hydrodam that would cause the destruction of the Leuser Ecosystem and put the people of Aceh and Indonesia at risk of disaster.
