Balikpapan, East Kalimantan - As one of the leading telecommunications infrastructure providers in Indonesia, Protelindo is committed to providing a positive impact on the country and its citizens, one of which is through corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities.

Through its activities, Protelindo is collaborating with the Pro Natura Foundation to implement the program “Protection of Protected Forests in the Wine River Area, Balikpapan, East Kalimantan”. The program has been supported by Protelindo from 2017 to 2023 through the Pro Natura Foundation based in East Kalimantan. This foundation carries out conservation, especially in the area of Wain River Protected Forest (HLSW), to protect endangered wildlife and implement habitat conservation and fire prevention in the Protected Wine River Forest.

The Sungai Wain Protected Forest is a unique protected forest and is a valuable asset for the City of Balikpapan and the Province of East Kalimantan. This forest provides a stable supply of fresh water to Balikpapan. Currently, the Sungai Wain Protected Forest is experiencing many threats from both nature and humans themselves. The main threats to the Wain River are forest fires, encroachment, and illegal logging and poaching activities.

It is hoped that the donation from Protelindo can increase the number of personnel and equipment facilities for carrying out conservation around the Sungai Wain area, East Kalimantan.
