How you can help Indonesia sustaining its nature and environment

Indonesia has a third largest tropical rain forest in the world. Economic crisis, political unstability, corrupted government, unsustainable development, all threaten Indonesia environment.

Deforestration (two million hectares a year) threaten tropical flora and fauna which are already endangered. Some animal species were already extinct from Indonesian forest. To name several, they were Bali Tiger and Javan Tiger.

As an environmental journalist, I have been writing many articles on environmental issues faced by Indonesia. Here are some of them.

Please feel free to raise issues or to make comments on the recent issues on Indonesian environment.
