Young people in Batulanteh Watershed continually confront forest degradation including the widespread reduction of the charismatic and important plants.
In 2015, with the support of the Rufford Foundation, young generation in Kelungkung Village, Sumbawa, started a dialogue with their parents and the elder generation to explore history of change in the village, the folklore or stories related to the villages, and the identification of local important plants and trees in the local forest.
Together, we documented plants that are rare, special, edible and medicinal. Click here for the full list of the plants.
Let us use our forest resources wisely!
