Patrols

The Sumatran Ranger Project employs a team of rangers who patrol the buffer zone of the Leuser Ecosystem in North Sumatra on a full time basis. Every month the men patrol on foot through at least five forest edge communities, buffer zone forest and land; deactivating and removing snares, providing community outreach and education, conducting aerial surveys with drones, responding to and helping mitigate human-wildlife conflict, reporting illegal activity  and collecting wildlife and human-wildlife conflict data. The team have removed over 500 snares to date, the only team patrolling the Leuser Ecosystem buffer zone in North Sumatra.
