A seventh consecutive fire-free year, an increase in the inventory of plant and animal species identified and new biodiversity research initiatives are among the highlights of the latest Restorasi Ekosistem Riau (RER) Progress Report.

In December 2020, Restorasi Ekosistem Riau (RER) published The Amphibians and Reptiles of the Kampar Peninsula: An Annotated Checklist detailing these species in the landscape including the critically-endangered (CR) Painted Terrapin and Great River Terrapin. The publication was compiled by RER resident ecologists from surveys together with Fauna & Flora International (FFI), Tropenbos Indonesia, and Museum Zoologi, Sekolah Ilmu dan Teknologi Hayati, Institut Teknologi Bandung.
