Focusing On The Conservation of Ecosystems, Habitats & Wildlife

Water is Vital to the Survival of an Ecosystem

70% of the Earth’s surface is Water and is undoubtedly the most precious natural resource that exist on our planet.


So why as humans do we recognize this, but continue to disregard it by polluting our rivers, lakes and oceans?  When are we going to wake up and take responsibility for our actions?   Are we even thinking about the consequences?   Is anyone aware that the pollution of rivers and streams with chemical contaminants has become one of the most crucial environmental problems within the 20th century?


Endangered Animal Trading on the Rise in Indonesia

I’m so sad to see that the forest areas in Indonesia are still being converted and taken over by humans forcing endemic wildlife species to flee the area.  Indonesia is home to many wonderful animals, some of which are only found there.  Is man’s needs for natural resources more important than keeping a species off the endangered species list?



The Green Turtle is “still the main turtle trade destination in Indonesia”, says Rosek Nurasahid, a ProFauna International wildlife observer.  According to the 2009 end -of-the-year report, ProFauna announced that trade in protected animals species in Indonesia was still high.  The latest ProFauna survey conducted at 70 birds markets in 58 cities in 2009 indicated 183 rare and protected animal species had been traded.
