Orang Rimba boy in a eucalyptus plantation within PT Wirakarya Sakti, a Sinar Mas group pulpwood concession near the village of Lubuk Mandar Syah in the Bukit Tigapuluh Forest Landscape. The Orang Rimba (or Kubu) indigenous people have seen much of their rainforest destroyed. While some rainforest remains in the area where the Orang Rimba hunt and collect products, these are threatened with conversion to pulpwood plantation.
