The Crocker Range National Park, also called “The Spine of Sabah,” covers 540 square miles of remote forest on the island of Borneo. It is one of the most important sanctuaries of biodiversity left in Sabah State, which developers have logged extensively.
Terian Village has agreed to protect a 107-acre watershed area. In return, Seacology will fund a micro-hydro energy system, which will provide clean electricity for the village. Micro-hydro systems create power by harnessing the vertical drop of a stream in the forest. Seacology is working with PACOS Trust, the Borneo Project, Green Empowerment and Tinimungan Popoburu Tulun (TINIPOT, or the Community Development Action Group of Terian) to complete this system.
