The process between the rescue of a pangolin and its release back into the wild often is an intensive one. Curious about what needs to be done before you can release a pangolin? In this first of two vlogs recorded at the Save Vietnam’s Wildlife rescue centre, I will guide you through the daily life here.

In some conservation cases, the situation is too complicated to solve with just one perfect method. One of those situations is the human-elephant conflict on Sumatra. This week’s vlog shows a conservation effort that is a step forward, but doesn’t provide a perfect answer to the problem.
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!
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!
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!
