In this episode of Smart Forest Radio, we speak with Sandyakala Ning Tyas from the Mountain and Jungle Explorer Association Foundation (Wanadri) in Indonesia . Sandyakala shares insights from the development of their Tree Guardian program, launched in 1998 to combat deforestation in an area exceeding 1000 hectares in West Java. In 2008, the programme began using digital technology to improve the survivability of adopted trees. It has since expanded to include mangrove adoption and animal and forest protection.
