Reddingsoperatie JAAN.

Het team van JAAN is afegelopen vrijdag ,26 Juli vertrokken, voor een reddingsoperatie  van orang-oetans van een palm olie plantage in Kutai, Oost Kalimantan. Deze orang-oetans worden letterlijk met grof geweld  uit de laatste bomen gehaald  door de bulldozers die het woud vernielen. De eerste orang-oetan werd verdoofd met een verdovings geweer en JAAN zal haar naar een veilig gebied brengen waar zij zal worden vrijgelaten. Het team probeert het tweede orang-oetan te redden, een moeder met haar baby,het is een trieste operatie, het hele team is er stil en verdrietig van, omdat het zo vreselijk is wat er gebeurt, de palm olie plantages maken al het oerwoud kapot. De dieren kunnen geen kant meer op.

Reduce Re use Recycle : Our sea is not a rubbish bin!
Jakarta Bay is located in the north of Jakarta. It is a rather shallow bay (average depth 15 m) covering an area of about 514 km2.
The bay receives fresh water runoff from 13 rivers which cross the Jakarta Metropolitan Area where 20 million people live.
Kepulauan Seribu (Thousand Islands) is an archipelago within the bay which consist of 108 small islands, forming a chain of offshore islands stretching along some 80 km in a NW – SE direction and 30 km from west to east. The Jakarta Bay and Kepulauan Seribu environment has been increasingly affected by a range of human and natural impacts, including pollution, natural ecosystem transformation and non-sustainable coastal resource exploitation.
The northern part of the Thousand islands in fact is a protected marine park (http://www.tnlkepulauanseribu.net/ ) where many vulnerable and also endangered animal species live. JAAN strives to protect these animal species and works together with the National Park Authorities. After four years of running conservation activities JAAN is now dealing with another problem. Yearly many animals become the victim of the plastic waste entering the area. JAAN witnessed a sea turtle that had suffocated a plastic bag, a dolphin jumping out of the water with plastic covering the dorsal fin, released eagles playing with plastic bags on the beach or mistaking plastic bags in the sea for food. Also during underwater surveys while diving JAAN realized that reef clean up actions are very needed. Fortunately Reef Check activities take place in the Thousand Islands. And sister organizations like Terangi have also contributed much to the conservation of the area. JAAN started now with beach clean up days after which the plastic is separated and re-used.
The plastic is sewn in to bags by local people that can be sold. This doesn’t only reduce the plastic in the area, it motivates people to clean up and start recycling.
Eat for Health (Jakarta) has assisted JAAN with the setting up of these activities.One local person (Toah) from Pramuka island was trained in the recycling of plastic. Now Toah works together with other local people to recycle plastic that is washed upon the pristine beaches within The Thousand Islands.The bags are sold although still on small scale and the profit supports the local people and JAAN activities within the area.Recycled items also sold and promoted
JAAN runs a recycle centre named ‘Huize Bloem’ at Pramuka Island.

Former Topeng Monyet- free from torture.

A group of former topeng monyet enjoy a nap together at Cikananga after being rescued from the streets of Jakarta by JAAN.   No longer subjected to beatings and starvation- these monkeys are now exhibiting normal monkey behavior.  Many thanks to Josha R  and Willi E for their amazing work at Cikananga and thanks also to the keepers and volunteers that care for these macaques.  JAAN now has 39 former topeng monyet at Cikananga and is looking for a release site for them where they can finally live in their natural habitat.  An uninhabited island would be best.  There are islands available- we just need a sponsor !  How about you or your company ??

JAAN werkt samen met het Indonesische publiek en met de autoriteiten. Donaties komen voor het grootste deel uit Indonesië zelf. De financiële steun uit Nederland geeft extra armslag en verruimt de actieradius van het programma.

Jakarta Animal Aid Network (JAAN) is a non-governmental, non-profit organization established in January 2008 to help protect Indonesian wildlife and to improve the welfare of Jakarta’s domestic animals.
JAAN serves as an information center and a central meeting point for volunteers interested in animal welfare issues.
JAAN enlists the help of individuals and Indonesian authorities to rescue animals from exploitation and to decrease the trade in endangered wildlife.
We aim to raise awareness of animal welfare issues by providing educational materials and presentations in and around Jakarta
JAAN supports the Brahminy Kite Rescue and Re-introduction Program.
This program was established in November 2004 within the Thousand Islands in collaboration with the Thousand Islands National Marine Park, Tirta Satwa, Alam Kotok Resort and Forestry Departement. The program is aimed at saving the Brahminy Kite (Elang Bondol)which once was the proud symbol of Jakarta but is now critically endangered due to the illegal pet trade. Read also in Dutch
