Conservation Center

 

The Wehea Conservation Center (WCC), built in the community of Nehas Liah Bing, will serve as the hub for sustainable conservation and environmental education activities in the region. This center, run completely by local Dayak, will also coordinate the scientific program in Wehea Forest and serve as a model of a successfully co-managed conservation initiative.

Activities coordinated through the center will include:

  • Environmental education for local children
  • Conservation awareness raising campaigns for surrounding communities
  • Forest ranger training
  • Management training for local community members to fully run and staff the center
  • Wehea culture education for local children and visitors
  • Wehea Forest information for visitors, highlighting research in the forest
  • Welcome center for visitors and researchers
