And after i know it, i would share it to you guys about this organisation if any of you don’t know yet about this. Personally i found it very interesting. I would do it myself if i have a chance. But sadly, again i have such a hectic life right now. Okay, now let’s straight to the point.

She works in FNPF (Friends of the National Parks Foundation). It’s a local Indonesian NGO that was founded in 1997 by a group of veterinarians, and conservation / community minded Indonesians.

This organisation create and run community-based conservation that respects the interdependence of wildlife, habitat and local community. It have saved the Bali’s emblem bird and one of the world’s rarest birds, the Bali Starling, from becoming extinct in the wild, relocated dozens of Orangutans to safety from the palm oil plantations to Tanjung Puting National Park and Lamandau River Wildlife Reserve, and have improved the well-being of hundreds of local community members.

Komodo, the biggest lizard in the world

Komodo (Varanus komodoensis) is the biggest reptile in the world lives in an island named Komodo Island, located near Flores region, East Nusa tenggara province. The people in the region called them ora. It could growth until 3m (9.8 ft) and weighing up to around 70 kilograms.  Their group behaviour in hunting is exceptional in the reptile world. The diet of big Komodo dragons mainly consists of deer, though they also eat considerable amounts of carrion. The scientist say that they have found the fossil of Komodo in Australia. In fact, that they already exist since 3,8 million years ago.

Mating begins between May and August, and the eggs are laid in September. About twenty eggs are deposited in abandoned nests or in a self-dug nesting hole. The eggs are incubated for seven to eight months, hatching in April, when insects are most plentiful. Young Komodo dragons  take about eight to nine years to mature, and are estimated to live for up to 30 years.

Orangutan is one of the endangered animal category. So, it’s our job to keep their existence. The name, orangutan comes from Indonesian. It means “man of the forest”.

In the ancient times, the population of orangutan spread in southeast part of Asia, like Thailand, Vietnam, China and Malaysia. Now, it’s just a few of them. The hunter often kill their mothers to get their son and sell them to the collector.

“Based on recent surveys, biologists believe that only 50,000-60,000 orangutans remain in the wild. They have lost approximately 80% of their forest home in the past 20 years.”
