"We are people from here, We must fight, We must teach people, Deforestation always happen and is bad" Paulinus Kristianto
This young 27yr old man, @demang_linus
is a friend of ours. He has impressed us daily over the last 7yrs with his knowledge of the rainforest, with his desire to document and end deforestation.
His passion to educate his people, and his dedication to the rainforest and all that resides within is second to none.
There is nothing he wouldn’t do to further that goal. He even put his own life at risk to try to save an adult, wild, male orangutan he came across caught in the middle of some dangerous rapids (orangutans can't swim). With his quick and calculated thinking, his knowledge and no tools except a machete and long thin trees that he cut down, he bravely saved the life of this hypothermic orangutan and saw it safely back to the trees.
POFCAP is so proud to be a part of his future. 🙏🏻💚🙌 facebook.com/paulinus.kristianto/videos/2093915053980793/

In 2013, starfish started dying by the millions along the Pacific Coast from Mexico to Alaska. They were succumbing to a wasting disease. One day, shortly after the epidemic began, Drew Harvell, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Cornell University who had been sounding the alarm about the disease, received a cheque in the mail from a group of school children in Arkansas.
“These kids were so upset about the idea of starfish disappearing from the oceans that they went out and they did this fund-raiser and raised 400 bucks for us to help in our research. I never asked them to do this. They just did it.” Dr. Harvell said.
Dr. Harvell matched it with her own money, and a donor kicked in quite a bit more. “That was what funded some of our early surveys,” she said. “These kids, who none of them had been to the Pacific Ocean, but they just needed to know those stars were there.”
One of the ultimate results of the children’s donation, a paper that sheds some light on the decline of the starfish, was recently published - the main suspect: our warming oceans. There are things we can do to help marine life, Dr. Harvell said. We can replant seagrass beds and protect mangroves, for instance. But, ultimately, we need to stop climate change.
All that from a group of kids taking action!

The HOME candle is always my go to gift when someone moves into a new house or they’re going away on a trip. There’s something about lighting it that instantly claims a space as you’re own, it’s like pulling over a warm duvet. Heaven 🌙

Today is World Day of Social Justice. Other than the obvious fairness, human rights and reparations of the past, social justice work is directly related to our environment. True environmentalism must address inequality, justice, gender equity and political activism. Without doing so we exclude large portions of our population from crafting ideas and implementing solutions, we do not give people the resources and opportunities to protect and conserve communities, cultures, lands and animals, and all the while we force many to face the consequences of our own actions and suffer irreparable harm.
Take a look at the latest OHI (Ocean Health Index) report for example. The top places on the list are either uninhabited and isolated or very rich countries. The bottom 10 are some of the poorest places in the world and often in the most conflict. It is no coincidence these were all horrifically colonized countries; Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Syria, Somalia, Sierra Leone, DRC, Lebanon, Nicaragua, Libya and Côte d’Ivoire.
Whilst protecting our lands should not be burdened only to the people that least impact them, in the Amazon for example, there are vast regions that are saved from our dedication to deforestation for agriculture due to the Indigenous peoples that live on, and defend, their land and rights.
In countries where many communities face poverty, there is often a reliance on natural resources and with accumulating factors of climate change and increased demand for our growing population along with agricultural activity, poverty often results in more environmental issues such as overfishing and the large reduction of species. Something that isn't fixed without first solving the existing poverty (which we should be doing regardless).
The only way we reconcile with our Earth and protect our ecosystems is to work on all the issues that influence these outcomes which is why we are vocal on this and support organizations that are specifically focussed on them. They are all related and entwined. Good for humans, good for the environment. #environmentaljustice #climatejustice
