Forest clearing within areas zoned for timber, logging, oil palm, and mining accounted for nearly 45 percent of deforestation in Indonesia between 2000 and 2010, finds a new study that examined forest loss within industrial concessions.

Logging, mining, and energy development have historically been major threats to ape populations worldwide. But does that have to be the case?

Mongabay.org's new Special Reporting Assignment (SRA) will explore the reconciliation of ape conservation and welfare with economic and social development. This award is for $10,000 for 3 months of reporting.

In the swampy peatlands of Basilam Baru in Sumatra's Riau Province a conflict between a community and a woodpulp company is illustrating some of the intractable challenges of conserving forests and addressing deforestation in Indonesia. 

On first glance the story seems depressingly familiar. One actor wants to preserve the forest, which serves as critical habitat for endangered Sumatran tigers and clouded leopards. The other wants to clear it for a plantation. But in this case, the roles are reversed: the forestry company is pushing to protect the forest under Asia Pulp & Paper's new forest conservation policy, while the local community aims to chop it down to plant rubber trees.

"Although the species once roamed much of Southeast Asia, today it is only found in Ujung Kulon National Park in western Javan and is known as one of the most imperiled mammals on the planet."
