LET'S KEEP EAST KALIMANTAN NATURE
C’mon friends, we’re going to the jungle/Be happy because of many animals/Claps your hands, let’s have fun/We’re playing in the jungle Orangutans are swinging/The Gibbons eat rambutan/Mr. Hornbill looks for food/So his wife and children are happy Look! There is proboscis/On the bank of the river eats rambai/Look over there are swinging/The red leaf monkey is relaxing The lyrics above started the school visit in SDN 004 Samarinda and SDN 001 Sei Kunjang in Samarinda ...

WHEN DOCTOR BUDI WAS HELPING BUDI
Perhaps, Budi never expected to have a deep open wound in the palm of his right hand, several injuries on his body, and in his right eye. We also never expected about these, but we hope if Budi was busy to swing from tree to tree in the jungle. But the fact told a different story. Budi came to Kutai National Park (TNK) Sangkima in East Kalimantan, with severe injured on his body and his ...

MY ORANGUFRIENDS EXPERIENCES IN SAMARINDA

When I decided to join with COP’s Orangufriends in Samarinda, one of my spontaneous reasons was, I just wanted to help orangutans. That was all, nothing else. Even, I never imagined how I was after I became a member of Orangufriends in Samarinda.  Knowing the COP for the first time, when I attended a mini workshop about orangutan that conducted ...

He is one of villagers who lives in the outskirt of forest in Pamalian village.  Today, thousands of acres of his forests and his rubber plantations ...
