In the Indonesian part of the island of Borneo, the Indigenous community of Sungai Utik has been protecting 10,000 hectares of land for decades, defending their forests from industry and obtaining hard-fought land rights from the government.

Activists call it an inspiring example of a victory for Indigenous rights — but in many places, local communities are struggling to protect vital biodiversity.

Indigenous groups worldwide face growing threats from loggers, miners and other private interests as well as the impacts of climate change.
