Field Report Greeting from Indonesia

Greetings from Indonesia

Progress in the reforestation project

We planted tree saplings in 50 hectares of land together with groups of local farmers and rangers of the Gunung Gede Pangrango National Park. The farmers selected which tree species to plant. We have now planted a total of 200 hectares of land, which we continue to monitor and maintain for on a regular basis to ensure that the saplings grow. The new director of the national park visited Daikin's forest in October. He spoke highly of our project and said he would like to learn a lot from the project to input to succeed reforestation projects in other regions.

As one component of the project, we contribute goats as gifts to community to improve their life. Up to now we have given 13 goats to three farmer groups. We have even received the good news that some of them gave a birth to a kid.

Biodiversity survey

We continue to survey the wildlife of Gunung Gede Pangrango National Park. In the third year of the project, our focus is on the Javan leopard. The Javan leopard is found only in the island of Java and is one of Indonesia's mammals facing the most imminent threat of extinction.The forest within the national park acts as a precious remaining habitat for this species. From October to December, we trained the national park's staff members to be able to monitor this endangered species.

Festival

We hold our project in partnership with the people of Nagrak, a village at the foot of Mount Gunung Gede. This term, we participated a community festival. Complete with a band performance, a speech contest, and even a fashion show, this festival is the largest event of the year. The villagers parade the neighborhood with floats carrying symbols of wishing large harvests of quality rice. Our project plays a part in restoring their forest of Gnung Gede as the source of water, so that the rivers which nourish their fields never run dry.
