    Hey everyone,

    Some may know, some may not.. I'm off to Indonesia (North Sumartra) come next Wednesday to work on the conservation protection of the Leuser Ecosystem, working with the Bukit Lawang Trust.

    It is a truly incredible ecosystem, rich with wildlife, resources and sadly UNIQUE in this day and age. It has; Sumatran Orangutans, Tigers, Elephants, Rhinos and Sun Bears roaming side by side of each other.. BUT, this area is a highly contested place of beauty! As a consequence of palm oil, poaching, pulp and paper plantations, and mining all being active in this space, the population of these amazing animals has dwindled. Not only are the animals affected but also the local communities situated on the fringes of these activities!!

    Bukit Lawang Trust is hosting a ORANG U CAN conservation festival next weekend, that aims on the protection of a unique eco-system by raising environmental awareness, enhance the collaboration between NGO, and empowering people to develop alternative and sustainable activities that increase local economy in a harmless way.

    It would be fantastic to round up as much as I can before I shoot off on Wednesday, I know I haven't left much time or able to climb mount Everest, or do anything funky (apologies), but it would be awesome to smash this and support an unbelievable ecosystem.

    If you want to know more, head to there FB page, and indulge yourself in all the goodies.
