The reforestation team and the Earthwatchers team arrive in Tembak village four and a half hours South of Sintang.

Tembak village is special because they have steadfastly refused to sell their land to timber and palm oil companies. They generate their own electricity through hydropower from the nearby spring and they have allowed the Eco-warriors 63 hectares of nearby forest for the rehabilitation of orangutans.

This first video shows the muddy and bumpy ride via four-wheel drive to Tembak. Pak Apui and his mother are removing rice husks - one of the few families in the village still choosing to do it themselves. Every afternoon, the kids head to the creek for a swim, a dive and to play ball.

In Part 2, you can watch the Eco-warriors doing preliminary work to restructure the nursery originally built by Pak Niyat and doing mapping of the village and surrounding areas.
