When it comes to big problems like climate change, we tend to focus on big solutions - but many of the best ideas come from people on the ground, facing day-to-day conservation battles. Sharing her effort to protect the Leseur ecosystem in Indonesia (the last place on Earth where the Sumatran rhino, tiger, elephant and orangutan still roam together in the wild), TED Fellow and conservationist FarwizaFarhan explains the challenges women face on the frontlines of forest preservation within patriarchal societies - and the resilient, world-changing power they hold.
