Note Sebangau National Park is one of the largest conservation area of ​​peat swamp in Indonesia which has the main function according to the Law no.5 of 1990 on the Conservation of Biological Natural Resources and its Ecosystem namely:

Protection of life support system
Preservation of the diversity of plants and animals and their ecosystems
Sustainable use of biological natural resources and their ecosystems.
Prior to becoming a National Park, Sebangau area was a concession area that was active around the early 1970s until the mid-1990s. After the HPH companies have ceased operations, illegal logging activities by communities are rife in Sebnagau. Timber extraction, either by some logging companies or by illegal logging activities by the community is rampant in Sebangau area. Timber extraction, either by some logging companies or by illegal logging activities by digging trenches / canals in Sebangau Peat Swamp Forest, greatly threatens the integrity of the Sebangau ecosystem. This will result in Sebangau Peat Swamp Forest Area losing water and can damage its hydrological function, and cause drought during the dry season so it is easy to catch fire during the dry season. Several major fire incidents have occurred in Sebangau area in 1992, 1994, 1997, and 2002. There is almost always a small and sporadic hotspot incident in Sebangau Region, in almost every dry season each year.

Considering the damage and the Natural Potential that is in Sebangau Area, Supported by initiators from the World Wide Fund (WWF) Sunderland Biorigion to make the Sebangau River and Katingan River as Protected Areas in the Regency / City and Provincial Spatial Plans (RTRW). The Sebangau Forest located in three areas of Central Kalimantan namely Palangkaraya City, Pulang Pisau Regency and Katingan Regency are proposed to be protected areas in the spatial plan (RTRW) of Central Kalimantan Province and make Sebangau as a Conservation Area to be managed as a Sustainable Development area.

Sebangau National Park (TN.Sebangau) with an area of ​​± 568,700 Ha was appointed based on Minister of Forestry Decree No.SK.423 / Kpts-II / 2004 dated October 19, 2004.
