The Nagari Paru Indigenous forest in West Sumatra, Indonesia, possesses rich biodiversity, where humans have long lived alongside other animal species. The Indigenous population uses the soil and respects the ecosystem, while still deriving economic value. They have their own rules and traditions to protect the place they call home.

However, illegal logging poses a threat to Nagari Paru's biodiversity, and its people are struggling to save the forest in the face of this threat.
