In May 2012, we launched Mongabay-Indonesia, an Indonesian-language environmental news service. Mongabay-Indonesia runs independently of Mongabay.com and is staffed by a team of Indonesians who live in more than 20 cities, town, and villages across the archipelago.

Mongabay-Indonesia has proven to be an enormously rich source of stories, some of which have been translated or re-written in English. Below are a selection of stories that originated on Mongabay-Indonesia and are now available in English on Mongabay.com.
