Deep in the remaining old growth forests of Borneo, the Setulang Dayak village guards its forest with deep commitment.

To date, the village's traditional law of Tana Olen (forbidden forest), withstands increasing pressure from encroaching logging industries. Now as rapid development rolls in, the village is trying to secure sustainable and forest-friendly future, including a eco-tourism venture and carbon credits.
