Earth Day and Water Day

Below are some photos of our booth at the Earth Day & Water Day exhibition at Palangkaraya (Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo) on the 17th of April, 2010. The Orangutan Foundation hosted the exhibition with the government conservation agency, BKSDA (Agency for Conservation of Natural Resources) along with several other organisations.
Palangkaraya Earth Day 1
The objective of the exhibition was to "voice out the caring, partnership and commitment from the community in the conservation of water, forest reserves, and sustainable natural resources."
Palangkaraya Earth Day 2
There was a good turnout from the public, about 500 people. The children particularly enjoyed the orangutan mascot (as played by our Education Officer, Fadlik) and the environment films that were screened.

Palangkaraya Earth Day 4
We distributed information about our EC-Lamandau project in the Lamandau River Wildlife Reserve and talked to people about the importance of conserving the Reserve, not just for orangutans but also for local peoples. 
We are continuing our Earth Day celebration on the day itself, April 23rd, 2010 at Sukamara with our youth organization, Green Organization. Activities planned include planting seedlings at the Danau Burung Post at Lamandau Reserve, environment film screenings, talks, and other conservation activities.
