Farwiza Farhan: New Big 5 Podcast
Farwiza Farhan is the co-founder and chairperson of HAkA, an NGO that works to protect the Leuser (loiser) ecosystem, 2.6 million hectares of diverse habitat in the northern corner of Sumatra, Indonesia, which is the last place on Earth where the tiger, orangutan, elephant, and rhino still roam together in the wild. She’s won several awards for her work, including Future For Nature and the Whitley Award.
In this podcast, we talk about protecting the Leuser ecosystem, orangutan cultures, a new female-led group of rangers, dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, and the need for change in how humans interact with wild animals and nature.
