- These are local news articles that have been published in local Acehnese newspapers. The students translate these articles as an exercise to help them prepare for their TOEFL exams. Secondarily, to convey to people in other countries (USA, Europe) the challenges the Acehnese people face with respect to managing their natural resources. That human-wildlife conflict in Aceh is frequent, that it takes it's toll on both sides; in addition, to provide an archive of human/wildlife conflict events.

So far we have had two students receive scholarships for advanced study (in Bogor, Indonesia) and one staff person will be starting their Fulbright scholarship, studying in the U.S.A. this fall.
