What is challenging if it is not to be solved? Starting with the 10 hectares of land with only citronella and pine as the crops, Gayo Permaculture Centre (GPC) started the scratch by changing the crops into others such as varieties of vegetables, fruits, patchouli etc. Many local people underestimated us as they know Citronella and Pine have allelopathy that prevents the growth of other crops. Applying the permaculture method, our team beats the challenge by successfully growing the variety of crops. Seeing such results, more and more local people come to learn about permaculture. Keep supporting us to beat another impossibility!

Apa artinya tantangan jika bukan untuk ditaklukkan? Memulai dengan tanah seluas 10 hektar, dengan tanaman yang hanya berupa Sereh Wangi dan Pinus, Gayo Permaculture Centre (GPC) memulai dari awal kembali dengan mengganti tanaman yang sudah ada dengan tanaman lain seperti sayuran, buah-buahan, nilam dan lain-lain. Kebanyakan masyarakat lokal meragukan hal yang kami Lakukan dapat berhasil mengigat tanaman Sereh Wangi dan Pinus yang bersifat alelopati sehingga meghalangi tanaman lain untuk tumbuh dengan baik. Dengan menerapkan metode permakultur, Tim kami berhasil menjawab tantangan dengan keberhasilan mengembangkan tanaman lain yang lebih beragam. Melihat hasil ini, semakin banyak masyarakat yang datang ke GPC untuk belajar mengenai permakultur. Tetap dukung kita untuk mengalahkan lebih banyak tantangan ya!

@Regranned from @paulhiltonphoto - Help us keep the last wild elephants wild! After catching up with a wild herd of Sumatran elephants in the Leuser Ecosystem, I can’t explain in words how important this project is. The GPS collars will have to wait until January after several training clinics, working alongside local partners and government. It’s going to be so exciting to work out their migration routes and population. To finally start to understand these elusive forest elephants and to finally put some real conservation measures into place. Please make a donation, this project can’t more forward without your funding. Link in my bio @wildlifeasia @paintedgroup @istandwithmypack @haka_sumatra @racingextinction @sabaghilton

It was an honour to meet and learn from Mr Rudi Putra, Goldman Environmental Award winner and founder of Aceh's park rangers, who dedicate their lives to protecting the forest in Gunung Leuser National Park. #LovetheLeuser #Forests #Rainforest #Aceh #Sumatra #Indonesia #Environment #saveourforests

A stunning Blue-winged Pitta (Pitta moluccensis) captured on one of our camera traps in the Leuser Ecosystem. These passerines nest on the ground and forage not far above but are rarely found in thick forest as seen here. Indonesia's love of caged songbirds is driving many species to extinction. One fifth of Indonesian households in the five largest cities hold caged passerines, a long held cultural tradition.

Credit to @paulhiltonphoto : A critically endangered Sumatra elephant feeds on plants in the Leuser Ecosystem. Elephants are a keystone species. Other animals, plants and entire ecosystems rely on them for survival. As do the elephants, so do the trees.

Elephants are known as the 'constant gardeners’ -- plants and trees rely on elephants to disperse their seeds far and wide through their dung. Elephants' large footprints act as water collectors for smaller animals.
Elephants share the same emotions and cognitive behavior as humans. They grieve for their lost loved ones, they feel fear, joy and empathy and are highly praised for their intelligence.

Bringing The Lost Pangolin Back to His Home

A local resident of Pucuk Lembang village – South East Aceh district, Khairumi, foud a Pangolin (Manis Javanica) entering his house on Thursday, 11th January 2018. He took the initiative to call OIC HOCRU team and gave his finding to the team. This Pangolin is a male and estimated about 2 years old. Following up, OIC HOCRU team worked together with Aceh Conservation Agency to translocate this Pangolin back to the wild. The Pangolin was released back to his home the day after in protected forest of Panton Luas area. As the matter of fact, Pangolin is the most trafficked mammals in the world and listed as red critically endangered species by IUCN. Having an aware local resident such as Khairumi fills us with such a proud feeling. OIC believes that educating the local people about the human-wildlife conflict is essential to reduce the number of conflicts incident significantly.

Mengembalikan Trenggiling yang Tersesat Kembali ke Rumahnya

Seorang warga desa Pucuk Lembang – Kebupaten Aceh Selatan, Khairumi, menemukan seekor Trenggiling (Manis Javanica) yang masuk ke dalam rumahnya pada hari Kamis, 11 January 2018. Ia pun mengambil inisiatif untuk menghubungi tim HOCRU OIC dan menyerahkan temuannya ini. Pangolin yang ditemukan ini berjenis kelamin jantan dan diperkirakan berumur 2 tahun. Langkah selanjutnya, tim HOCRU OIC bekerja sama dengan tim BKSDA Aceh untuk proses translokasi Trenggiling ini kembali ke hutan. Trenggiling ini pun dirilis keesokan harinya di hutan lindung yang berada di desa Panton Luas. Faktanya, Trenggiling merupakan mamalia yang paling tinggi angka perdagangannya di dunia dan terdaftar sebagai spesies terancam punah oleh IUCN. Adanya warga desa yabg memiliki kepedulian akan konservasi seperi Khairumi membuat kami merasa sangat bangga. OIC percaya bahwa mengedukasi masyarakat desa mengenai konflik manusia-satwa liar merupakan hal yang sangat penting untuk menurunkan jumlah insiden konflik secara signifikan.

A farmer laments his ailing corn crop--he cannot afford fertlizer. The land is inside Gunung Leuser National Park and isn't exactly legal, but people here struggle with poverty and need to make a living. In the distance, where the Kompas River flows, hornbills fly and tigers roam. #Agroforestry #Forests #Aceh #Sumatra #Indonesia #LovetheLeuser #JungleGypsy

Several stuffed wildlife animals were set on fire by the North Sumatran Prosecutors on 7th January 2018. OIC was invited to witness the event, as one of the stuffed animals was a carcass of a female Sumatran tiger, the evidence from poaching case in August 2017. Demolition of stuffed wildlife animals is part of the process once a certain forest criminal case is closed. The demolition itself is attended by Enforcement Criminal Wildlife Department (GAKKUM), North Sumatran Conservation Agency, Gunung Leuser National Park authority, North Sumatran Prosecutor's Department and North Sumatran Police Department. OIC believes that active collaboration with respective government authority would ensure the path towards the good practice of law enforcement could come true. Law enforcement is not the work of one organization only, indeed it can only be realized through good coordination, transparency, and strong wills from every party involved.

Beberapa barang bukti dari kasus kejahatan satwa liar dimusnahkan oleh pihak kejaksaan Sumatera Utara pada tanggal 7 Januari 2017 . OIC turut diundang untuk menyaksikan acara tersebut, karena salah satu dari benda tersebut merupakan bangkai Harimau Sumatera, yang merupakan barang bukti dari kasus perburuan pada bulan Agustus 2017 silam. Pemusnahan barang bukti kejahatan adalah bagian dari proses tindak lanjut begitu kasus kriminal hutan tersebut telah ditutup. Proses pemusnahan ini sendiri dihadiri oleh GAKKUM, BBKSDA, BBTNGL, pihaak kejaksaan dan Polda SUMUT. OIC percaya bahwa kolaborasi aktif dengan otoritas pemerintah masing-masing akan memastikan jalan menuju praktik penegakan hukum yang baik dapat terwujud. Penegakan hukum bukanlah hasil kerja satu organisasi saja, memang hanya bisa diwujudkan melalui koordinasi, transparansi, dan kemauan kuat dari setiap pihak yang terlibat.

A young oil palm tree planted illegally within the boundaries of Gunung Leuser National Park. Palm oil is in about 50% of supermarket products, and expansion of illegal plantations destroys the forests and water systems. But we can't just destroy the oil palms. Negotiations with the owners comes first, to keep a good relationship. Once in agreement, the locals switch to sustainable agroforestry alternatives such as jengkol, cacao and durian trees, which are natural in the forest landscape and boost the local economy. #Aceh #LovetheLeuser #Indonesia #Forests #agroforestry #JungleGypsy

Pak Mahmut, one of the oldest park rangers, still patrols the forest for illegal loggers and poachers for 15 days at a stretch. "I have no teeth but I'm still strong!" So much respect for Pak Mahmut and all the rangers here who protect Indonesia's wildlife. #Aceh #Forests #Environment #Indonesia #JungleGypsy #LovetheLeuser #Sumatra #GunungLeusero

And you thought jungle trekking was all about the trees?! It blows my mind to be able to walk through rock formations like this as part of a cheeky trek on my days off....it must be an old river bed...look at the ripples on the rocks😮 its not caving (that scares me) just incredible rocks that are part of the rainforest. There are bits that are still rivers and you can do a spot of wildswimming thru a stone corridor with lianas, vines and trees overhead! Join us for a unique experience.....only offered by Green Hill. Let us take you off the beaten track to environments that are mindblowingly beautiful.😵😍🌳😊❤️🌲💚

Para orangutan kecil ini menjadi yatim. Induk mereka dibunuh oleh pemburu liar dan pekerja perkebunan. Tragis, saat konflik terjadi, selalu saja satwa yang disalahkan. Padahal, kita manusia yang memulainya.
