The Leuser Ecosystem is the only place on earth were tigers, rhinos, elephants and orangutans live in the same forest area. And as if that's not enough, also the tallest flower of the world can be found in this natural wonderland,  the Amorphophallus Titanum

magical leuser

Leuser's tigers share their habitat with several other critically endangered species, like the Sumatran elephant and the Sumatran orang utan. A few months of camera trapping in one of Leuser's shrinking lowland forests shows it's all still there... Leuser is still a magical place. Help to save Leuser and sign this new petition.

snares again



At this moment we're looking hard to find sufficient funding to continue removing these ugly snares and to keep the trap cameras running!

Sumatran Serow

probably still common in Leusers far corners, but very rare near human settlements. The Sumatran Serow is now listed as vulnerable by the IUCN. We got only three videos of this odd looking species of goat antilope and it seems to be three times the same individual..
