Sanur Independent School planting the trees around Besikalung temple

TEMAN Taman Nasional Yayasan (FNPF) this week teamed with a bunch of students from all over the world to help improve the habitat of local birdlife near the village of Utu in central Bali.

FNPF and 20 students from Sanur Independent School (SIS) got together to plant about 100 trees – including pines, palms and magnolias – near the Besikalung Temple, not far from Utu, in an area which borders UNESCO World Heritage protected rice terraces. The students were also able to raise funds to support FNPF’s work.

“In a few years time these trees will provide birds in this area with vital food, shelter and a nesting area, encouraging them to stay nearby,” says FNPF Founder and CEO Drh I. Gede Nyoman Bayu Wirayudha.

Over the last few years FNPF has, with the support of the local community, twice released near the temple several species of birds which are extinct in the local area.  Through an agreement with local villages and farmers, wildlife is protected in an area 5km in radius around the temple. “FNPF berharap untuk dapat melepaskan lebih banyak burung di sekitar Besikalung Temple selama beberapa tahun ke depan,” katanya.

Sanur Independent School teacher Sara Finnegan-Doyon says the tree planting project came about after students completed a study unit on the rainforest, the eco-system and deforestation. “I asked the kids if they wanted to put together a project to try to make a difference.”

Along with planting trees the Grade Four students, who come from countries such as Australia, France, the United Sates and Japan, juga mengangkat tentang 6 juta rupiah untuk mendukung pekerjaan yang FNPF. "Mereka melakukan penjualan kue, mereka melakukan pemutaran film di sebuah studio yoga lokal. Mereka telah melakukan begitu banyak untuk membuat hal ini terjadi. "

Para siswa juga mengunjungi Bali Wildlife Rescue Centre, di barat daya Bali, which FNPF has been running since 2011. “The rescue centre, one of only eight of its kind in Indonesia, is used to care for and rehabilitate birds and primates, many of which are victims of poaching and wildlife trafficking, “ says Dr Bayu.

FNPF is an Indonesian NGO working to protect wildlife and its habitat, at the same time as supporting local communities.  It operates seven sites across the Indonesian islands of Bali and Kalimantan. Its projects – which include wildlife rehabilitation, pohon untuk reboisasi, the breeding and release of critically endangered birds, environmental education, dan memberikan kesempatan menghasilkan pendapatan bagi masyarakat setempat - menghormati saling ketergantungan satwa liar, habitat dan orang-orang.

FNPF tidak menerima dana pemerintah dan hanya mengandalkan pada dukungan yang murah hati dari donor dan relawan kami untuk melanjutkan pekerjaan kami. Untuk membuat sumbangan kunjungi website kami di www.fnpf.org
