Conservation and Sustainability

In my previous article “New Year Festivity”, I have already mentioned some issues regarding marine life conservation and how the villagers were feasting on from some endangered species for their main-courses during their celebrations. I honestly thought it was not a very good thing until now. Sometime ago, I tried to discussed it with my friend on the phone, who reminded me that each area has its own way of conserving its environment, and of course Raja Ampat is included.

In the meantime, I realized that my emotions made me miss the sustainability efforts that already happen in Raja Ampat. In this article, I will try to examine how their ancient tradition could bring such positive impacts and other things. Of course I will not miss how the foundation has been doing so far either. Even though I can’t mention all the sustainability efforts happening on both sides, this article contains some information of them both.
