With support from UNESCO, the OIC is going to launch a book entitled “From Ilegal Logger to the Protector of Leuser : Tangkahan and Leuser Ecotourism Development” on 7 August 2014 at Madani Hotel, Medan, at 09.00 am to 16.00 pm. The book, written by Mr Wiratno MSc and edited by OIC team and Ary Suhandy from Indecon, tells the story of Tangkahan’s former destructive past, when the forests were exploited for short-term gain, until such time that the local community decided to change course and operate more sustainably through embracing ecotourism.
