Sumatra lost 40% of its old growth forest from the 1990s until 2010, making it the global epicenter of tropical deforestation. International grantees and Fellows of the Pulitzer Center will share their wildlife-focused investigations from Sumatra and elsewhere in Asia with university students and lecturers in the area. What's the impact of deforestation on the wildlife population and habitat? How can it change the forest ecosystem and affect the life of a human? This seminar will also discuss the connections between wildlife hunting in neighboring countries in SEA with global health and the COVID-19 pandemic.
