We have a long-term project studying reforestation in some of the most damaged rainforests of Borneo. Our research focuses on identifying the best tree species for replanting and optimal light, water and nutrient conditions for survival and growth.
We have set up ‘Community Seedling Nurseries’ groups in Sebangau, Palangka Raya. The main objective of seedling nurseries is to supply and grow the seedlings for planting in specific rehabilitation areas of Sebangau National Park, which provides direct economic benefits as the seedlings are purchased by BNF.
In addition, this program will help educate the community to jointly protect the future of the peat-swamp forest ecosystem. The results from our research feed back into our seedling nursery and replanting protocols to ensure ongoing improvements and increased success of our efforts to reverse the deforestation of Borneo’s tropical rainforests.
