Original text on this topic:
Mr Coomans de Ruiter draws attentions to the area of Gunung Paloneg, which is important to conserve animals of Borneo like the rhinoceros. The chief forest officer De Jong gave a proposal to the government in Buitenzorg in 1926 to make a reserve of this area which is part of the regions Simpang, Matan and Soekadana. The appeal was for an area of 17000 ha. In 1929, Ing. Shuitemaker, the successor of De Jong, asked again and wanted to enlarge the area to 30.000 ha. It seemed that the plans were withdrawn due to juridical problems, but the nature of these problems is unknown. It is decided to approach the Governor-general to say that plans are far advanced and that we trust that the area will soon be declared a game reserve.
