At Ecoriginals, we're proud to support the Katingan Restoration and Conservation Project in Indonesia, focused on preserving and restoring peatland ecosystems. Peatlands store massive amounts of carbon and play a crucial role in fighting climate change.
Why does it matter?
- Peatlands store up to 20 times more carbon than trees and vegetation combined.
- Indonesia holds 36% of the world's tropical peatlands, threatened by deforestation.
- The project aims to protect 149,800 hectares of peatland, preserving carbon stocks and biodiversity.
How we're making a difference:
- Satellite monitoring and fire management techniques protect forests from degradation.
- Trained community firefighters prevent fires with drone and satellite support.
- Peatland rewetting activities restore degraded areas and protect endangered species.
- Mitigating climate change by safeguarding carbon storage.
- Preserving biodiversity and protecting endangered species.
- Improving the well-being of local communities through various initiatives.
Together with Ecologi, we're protecting peatland ecosystems and combating climate change. Choose Ecoriginals and help us build a greener future.
