I research ecotourism and environmental management in Tanjung Puting National Park in Indonesian Borneo. I explore how international conservation, climate change discourse, tourism, and national policies shape park management and the lives of those people who work in, live near, and travel to Tanjung Puting. I’m also interested in how these larger discourses are enacted and transformed in practice in the context of the park.
