The government plans to set aside 30 million hectares of protected forests for habitats for endangered species in order to prevent their extinction.
Forestry Ministry Zulkifli Hasan warned that the shrinking number of rare species, such as the Sumatran tiger, the Javanese rhinoceros and the orangutan was due to habitat infringement by private companies and local communities.
