Integrated Conservation

Integrated Conservation (ICON), is ensuring the long-term survival of Wehea Forest, a biodiversity hotspot and home to some last and largest populations of rare and endangered species in East Kalimantan. Protection is accomplished through long-term engagement with the Wehea Dayak and collaboratively implementing a program that integrates research, education, outreach and development. This innovative program aims to reconcile endangered species conservation with local aspirations for social and economic development.
