Make an effort to protect giant banyan trees

A Sazasa tribe is located in mountainous Dulan. The Bununs called Luanshan a�?Sazasa,a�? means a�?a place where sugar canes grow tall, animals jump about, and people live well.a�? Nine years ago a tycoon was interested in buying this primeval giant banyan trees area above the tribe for building columbaria and resorts. Since Aliman does not want stories of a�?TheA�Walking Treesa�? told by their elders when he was little to disappear, he tried hard to raise money to purchase the land to rescue the most precious resources of the tribe, and he established the Indigenous CommunityA�ReconstructionA�Cultural and Educational Foundation. Based on mutual benefit mechanism to the tribe, the protection of precious giant banyan trees has begun to proceed systematically. It is also opened to tourists to visit and experience in order to raise funds for maintenance works.
