Campaign to help reforest Tanjung Putting National Park
The next phase in the company’s initiative, with it’s partners and donors, to develop a RAPID RESPONSE FOREST PROTECTION UNIT based in the village of Tandjung Harapan will commence by sending three trainees from this area (including Ucok Hakim of our Rimba Lodge) to The Beechmont Rural Fire Brigade in the Lamington National Park of SE Queensland.
The Indonesian costs (visas, internal travel to Bali etc) will be paid from our company Conservation Fund. The airfares and all Australian costs will be paid from the special account into which all donor funds have been paid. We will be reporting updates of expenses on this site and our Facebook site (www.facebook.com/ECOLODGESINDONESIA)
This a long term activity which will require constant funding as the next stage is paying for equipment and water sources on site. We will need constant support and will inform our donors as we proceed. Thank you all for your support.
