(Singapore - September 16, 2021) - From the producers of the critically acclaimed Frontier Borneo series is a new adventure in the wilds of Sumatra, Indonesia, Frontier Sumatra. Premiering on Discovery Channel Asia on Monday, September 20 at 8 p.m. GMT+8, Frontier Sumatra (www.frontiersumatra.com)will share the incredible stories of the people, the animals and the land of Kampar Peninsula in Riau Province, a remote peatland rainforest the size of London.
Donovan Chan, Creative Director, Beach House Pictures comments “It’s amazing to see the kind of stories that can be found around Asia, especially around wildlife and the people who dedicate their lives to it. We’re very excited to share Frontier Sumatra and the exciting work that these heroes do.”
At its heart is Restorasi Ekosistem Riau (RER), an ambitious project that unites community, scientists and industry in the never-ending battle to protect one of Earth’s most important, yet least understood, ecosystems. We follow heroic rangers, scientists, and forest managers as they work to save one of the last great peat forests in South East Asia. We push deep into this impenetrable forest to uncover the secrets of a world barely studied, encounter the extraordinary wildlife that lives here, and discover what it takes to preserve this remarkable habitat for future generations.
