The moment you walk in the Leuser rainforest, you immediately sense that it’s full of life. In this week’s vlog I introduce you to some unique inhabitants of Leuser, found nowhere else in the world. Each one of these species deserves to be protected, but there are more reasons why we should take good care of Leuser. Check out the video to learn about that!
Sometimes conservation challenges are too big to fight on your own. In situations like these, it’s better to team up than to stand alone. In the fight to save the unique Leuser ecosystem in Indonesia, Sumatra-based NGOs HAkA and FKL joined forces. Read this week’s blog to find out why this collaboration turned out to be so successful!
This week’s video is recorded on beautiful Calawit Island. Even on a small island like this you can find many conservation stories and challenges. At first I wanted to report on mangroves, but during my stay on the island, I became intrigued by the complex relation between dugongs and tourism. So here’s a longer video dealing with both topics. Enjoy!
During my stay at C3 I’ve had the unique opportunity to visit some local communities across Busuanga Island. As I promised you last week, today’s video is about some of the work C3 has done in those communities. Watch it and see that this NGO is called Community Centred Conservation for a good reason!
After last week’s blog, you’d maybe expect a video this week. I was planning to, but the internet connection wouldn’t let me upload any video. Yup, that’s also nature conservation: being in remote areas is both a blessing and a curse. Anyway, this week’s blogpost is about C3 and it’s flagship species: the dugong. Enjoy!
Last week you’ve seen the Sea Rangers on one of their training days. I can understand you wonder why they need to sail in the first place. And who decided who will become Sea Rangers? Or maybe you want to be a Sea Ranger yourself? Read this blogpost and find the answer to all of these questions!
If you have been following the Future For Nature winners lately, you probably have seen that the first team of sea rangers has recently been recruited for Wietse’s Sea Ranger Service. Enough reason for me to go aboard and meet them!
As I’m arranging and preparing the last things for my adventure, I think it’s about time to meet the projects I’ll be joining very soon. In this little story, I introduce you to the organisations, together with the people who started these initiatives. Spoiler: every one of them is very awesome!
I am very happy and proud to announce that Future For Nature Academy: Report is officially launched! With this first upload, I have started my journey full of passion, inspiration and above all: conservation. Watch this video to find out more!
