Sebangau National Park

Sebangau National Park, bounded by the Katingan and Sebangau rivers, covers an area of 568,700 hectares and was designated a national park by the Forestry Department on 19 October 2004. Everyone who visits is enchanted by the beautiful scenery, the abundant agro ecosystem, traditional fishery and culture and the local wisdom of park’s human communities, who reside there peacefully and harmony.

Sebangau National Park is also under threat from destructive practices such as illegal logging and digging of canal that destroy the peat bogs, causing the terrain to dry out and leading to forest fires.

WWF Indonesia has three major targets it wishes to achieve through its programs in Sebangau. First, the peat bogs in the Sebangau area need to be preserved and managed in a collaborative and sustainable way. Second, to improve the quality of life for local communities. Third, local administrations should integrate the principles of conversation and sustainable development into all policies and planning.
