Mr. Robert Martin Mijol from Malaysia finished his 6-month WFI Fellowship Program in 2015. During his time at WFI he focused on learning about Payments for Ecosystem Services to use the knowledge to share and expand the idea into government policy and legislation back home.
After his WFI Fellowship program he resumed working for the Sabah Forestry Department, where he got promoted to be the Manager for Ulu Segama-Malua Sustainable Forest Management Project. His new responsibilities include coordinating stakeholders, evaluating forest re-certification, leading field work (mostly on forest rehabilitation for orang-utan), and protecting forests from illegal logging and Ag-encroachment and wildlife poachers. He spends most of his time out of the grid caring for the beautiful tropical rainforest of Sabah.
