    island so called endemic species and that now are threatened with extinction Masarang tries to protect these species and reintroduce them in the wild thus contributing to the preservation of biodiversity Masarang also conducts campaigns against the eating of wild animals including pointing out the disease risks In Sulawesi still many monkeys get killed for the skulls which used to be human skulls in the old days this is a former headhunter region The various skulls are still used in certain rituals and because of tourism there is still demand for more skulls of protected species Masarang has made fake skulls from recycled plastic which are indistinguishable from real ones Cultural groups receive these artificial skulls for free if they promise to protect the wildlife Project aims To combat the trade in wild animals through law enforcement Education of the local population with regard to nature conservation and wildlife Release of captured and rehabilitated animals High quality care for the animals that are rescued Provide shelter for the animals who unfortunately cannot be released because they cannot survive in the wild Back to top Results Since opening many animals more than 2000 of up to 110 different protected species were intercepted before being smuggled out of the country After being seized many animals were rehabilitated and released in the wild again The hornbills in the national park of Tangkoko for example come from the center and breed again Shortly a group of black macaques will be released in the local Irang forest near the village Kayawu in a forest where farmers exploit sugar Palms The farmers protect these animals in exchange for the benefits of working with the sugar factory which was founded by Masarang In Irang about 30 black Sulawesi macaques Macaca nigra will be released On the Masarang mountain see reforestation projects we are working on a release area with a fence to protect them for among others babirusa deer and macaca heckii another Sulawesi primate Education for especially children who are being guided and taught in the park Regularly more than 100 school children visit the center monthly Also there are occasional tourists who are allowed to visit certain parts of the center under guidance of local workers Often visitors give a donation which is deployed to the benefit of the animals Back to top Plans and needs The station has a strong need for various new and larger animal housing These includes a release cage for birds of prey on the beach islands where the gibbons can live until a place in Borneo becomes available a new socialization cage for macaques and various cages for confiscated animals Also there are additional resources needed for investigations into the animal trade and release areas new educational materials audiovisual equipment for the educational facilities a 4 wheel drive vehicle a back up system with solar cells additional medications etc The website of Tasikoki regularly states an updated wish list www tasikoki org This ranges from medications that are passed

    and have to have a good reputation and ditto academic results For example the student that was recently supported Yeanly Pinaria was selected for her study of yeasts and bacteria that improve the quality of the palm juice of the Masarang sugar palm farmers Thanks to the support of the Rabobank Foundation for this program about 80 children per year could be supported with a scholarship in the past few years However support for the foreseeable future is uncertain and we would love to have more children in this successful program Back to top Significance and aims To provide children with education opportunities that they otherwise would not have without support they would already have to work as a child Human potential is thus not spoiled Longer and better education makes the local people more self sufficient and improves their future The comprehensive environmental program that accompanies the scholarships ensures that these children are aware of the importance of the environment will act more sustainable and can take their own green initiatives in the future Back to top Results The Masarang scholarship goes a step further then an ordinary school through among other things extra lessons in English environmental topics and by extracurricular clubs in which children learn in a playful manner about their precious nature Since 2001 hundreds of children have been able to go to high school who otherwise would have been forced to start working They have good chances to avoid poverty and have a better future Dozens of young people have been able to get a university education and can thus follow their passion and talents They can take a leading role in the local community and help it improve Two PhD researches in the field of environmental science were supported that helped students and also benefitted the community to become more sustainable Back to top Plans and needs We would like to send 200 additional children to school each year This costs about 90 Euro per child per year In addition we also would like to make research scholarships available for students from poor families These cost 500 Euro per student per year Project leader Dr Julius Pontoh Back to top Keep updated your email address won t be given to third parties News The MessageBottle supports Masarang Short update on the fire situation in Indonesia Water from the Masarang Mountain They stole my stolen view Car donation for Sintang Sweating for Charity Additional Tree Nursery Built at Tasikoki for Coastal Projects Visiting Masarang in Tomohon SOAP Processing in tengkawang factory in Tembak Black Crested Macaques move to new enclosure View all recent articles Masarang Foundation Partners Over Masarang Missie en doelen Werkwijze Willie Smits Masarang International 20Steven Smit 20Marie José van Schaik 20Wim van de Meerendonk 20Esther Klinkum Masarang Indonesië 20Nico Tatontos 20Onna Senduk 20Jimmy Mantow 20Sonny Ering 20Youdi Windah 20Jus Kamagi 20Deiby Pitoy 20Pingkan Supit Masarang Hong Kong Oostenrijk Jaarverslagen Contact Herbebossing 20Doelen 20Resultaten 20Boomkwekerijen 20Onderzoeken Redding bedreigde diersoorten en biodiversiteit 20Doelen 20Resultaten

    way For example a farmer will be requested following from the GIS system not to plant tomatoes after potatoes because they are sensitive to the same fungi Better plant corn instead because that needs less potassium which was used up by the potato but it needs more nitrogen that is still nicely stocked in the ground after potatoes We could then plant beans to make up for the loss of nitrogen through their symbiotic root nodules and after that it is again safe again for the tomatoes because the potato specific pathogenic fungi are now gone from the soil Back to top Significance and aims of the project The GIS Mapalus project helps to ensure an optimal production from the land by planting the right crops on the most suitable soils As a result also less manure and pesticides are needed We also mix planting combinations of plants that make better use of the space and light which also increases production Additionally crops are rotated allowing the soil to remain fertile and allowing local consumers to always have much choice in healthy food The production surplus can now be exported outside the region Coordination leads to a higher total income that is fairly and equally shared by the farmers We want to examine the impact of sustainable agriculture and the planting of new forests on the environment and the local people Back to top Results Thousands of farmers now work in this project where the total production and income for the farmers is increased by efficient agriculture but also by coordinating who grows what so no overproduction arises The farming methods are also more environmentally friendly The region produces more vegetables than it needs so the surplus can be exported for example to Papua an Java Masarang determines the planting time of crops so farmers can harvest a particular product on the same day and the entire production of the cooperative is transported via a waiting truck and ship This saves storage costs and by economies of scale the transport costs per farmer are lower Solidarity and cooperation among the farmers is strengthened Back to top Plans and needs We want to collect more data on agricultural production and expand the GIS 100 students who are working for 6 weeks interviewing farmers process feedback and enter and analyze data For this work extra computers are needed Furthermore we need additional satellite images All this must also become a part of the curriculum of the ITM University University established by Willie Smits that enables poorer students to complete an agricultural or technical study This project covers about 15 000 hectares and 10 000 families and will cost about EUR 115 000 It can become a wonderful example project and yield a multiple of this investment for the environment and the people Project leaders GIS Bruno Roy Watulangkow Data Collection Jance Pitoy Back to top Keep updated your email address won t be given to third parties News The MessageBottle supports Masarang

    animals are released again that were previously intercepted from the illegal animal trade and that were rehabilitated in the Tasikoki animal rescue center In the Masarang reforestation areas they are actively protected Back to top Results A river that had disappeared 50 years ago and that originates in the mountain range now flows continuously again Seven formerly dried up water sources around the Masarang mountain produce water again and are stable In particular the sources of Uluna and Tataaren are of great importance for the drinking water supply of the local population Floodings in the village of Matani which sometimes took place 3 times per year are a thing of the past because the new forest has greatly improved the water regulating function of the soil Soon the forest can supply the first wood obtained trough sustainable forestry and selective harvest By replanting this forest some 200 jobs are created among others in the local house construction sustainable forestry sugar palm and fruit cultivation Rainfall in the area is significantly increased and the local temperature significantly reduced Flora and fauna have come back to life for example owls have made their appearance as well as the famous Celebes toad and plants that are named after the mountain such as Osmoxylon masarangense and Begonia masarangense Lower farming lands are fed by springs and by the constant water supply about 500 hectares of rice paddies now produce one harvest extra per year which corresponds to a quarter of a million kilos of rice more The new forest area is also a learning area for school students The University of Manado keeps regular excursions and students do their research there The mountain gives shelter to birds that use it as migratory route In particular twice a year large quantities of birds of prey fly over Approximately 1 million trees have been planted The reforestation absorbs approximately 5 000 tons of CO2 extra per year Back to top Call to action Climate change takes place valuable animals and plants become extinct clean drinking water is scarce When we protect the rain forest we can turn these disasters around The preservation of the forest is the preservation of ourselves You can help Support Masarang to reforest more areas according to its revolutionary process that leads to a higher yield for nature wildlife and people Plans and needs Masarang wants to reforest more areas in Indonesia following the successful example of the Masarang mountain and purchase land for this purpose at critical locations that can protect water sources and provide employment for local people We like to educate and inform local people about the crucial functions of the forest and to fight illegal logging We like to build an environmentally friendly enclosure to be able to release marsupials macaques Macaca nigra and babirusa deer The fence is necessary in order to protect animals against hunters and to avoid conflicts with the local population would they enter into the Woods We like to build an information centre
