Uno de los donantes de FNPF, Copérnico, specializes in simple but highly useful technology, sponsored students from Columbia University to help us conduct a survey at three villages (bordering Tanjung Puting National Park and Lamandau River Wildlife Reserve). The goal of the survey is to find out facts about the possibility of using alternative energy in the area.
The survey was done for 2 steps, 10 days on January 2011 y 9 days on March 2011 in Tanjung Harapan village, Sungai Cabang village and Sei Pasir village.
