I hope you are doing fine. Any news from your scholarship applications? I have recently researched on SFM and Reduced impact logging and since you are working in the field as forester I though you might be interested in the following document: ftp://ftp.fao.org/docrep/fao/005/AC805E/Ac805E00.pdf
It is a very comprehensive book on reduced impact logging with some case studies from Indonesia. These articles are usually not freely available.
Hi Mas Taufik. Well, not many stories here, cz I'm not holding any class yet before I get my master and/or PhD. I'm still holding my bachelor degree. But as much as goes by, what makes interesting for being lecturer is you could have more time to get focused on your research, and for me its environmental accounting.
Yeah, hard work is fully needed especially on fighting for nature's right! Semangat! Good job & best wishes brother!
I'm not in Jakarta anymore. I have settled in Yogyakarta as a junior lecturer in my faculty and still waiting for taking my master degree. Hope could make it next year! And talking about Papua's forest, how large area that decreased because of illegal logging, oil company's exploration, or any other caused? What is the urge matters there?
did you get my message? Sorry, the attachment is quite large, but I couldnt get it to a smaller file size. If you have no time for the task I wrote you - no problem. But if you can spent some minutes on it, I would appreciate.
Yup, it's okay and hope we could meet someday might be in Europe then! :)
Great! Wish your best in Erasmus Mundus! Yeah even tough some of my friends said that it's pretty challenging but I'm sure you could make it brother!
And how about trying what Mika suggest you for Humboldt Foundation? It's worth to fought too! ;o)
It's so nice to meet you here too..Yup, I'm in Jogjakarta "Lovely Goddess City", and really this place is so and still wonderful..I will be pleased to meet you while you were here sometimes and might be in next August if it possible.
Wow, I should learn many things from you about forest conservation! Well, really I'm a newbie here, so I'm still beginner on conserving nature research, I'm learn sooooo much from Mika while I met in last conference in Germany. So inspiring moment.
But no matter what I always do my best on taking positive contribution on it. So please don't hesitate to let me know if there will be something I could help or join or participating regarding to save our earth. Well, hope we could share many news & stories then.
Keep in touch!
Warm greetings from sunny-getting-hot Yogyakarta,
Thanks for ur comment on my page.
Sure, i'll keep alive my life here. I have my own planning and mapping to create more challenging work environment here :) to do something, a little thing for our beloved forests :) let's keep in touch and sharing any "real" forest conservation-related informations.
How's life going in West Papua, K?
I started work at BPKH4 Samarinda on 14 May and still adapting the work environment here.
Hopefully i can survive and do something more for our beloved forests, since now i am a gov. officer of MoF.
But, the activities during this first weeks are very boring and monotone. Can't wait to go outside, in the real field. To see n feel the realities.
how are things in Papua? I am now developing some model to simulate deforestation in PNG. Maybe I can send you a conceptual model (no worries, no math !;O) in which I make assumptions about the drivers of deforestation? Would you be willing to have a look at it?
So do I, just 2 years older that you, not so much different hah:-). I did an internship in East Borneo and wrote my thesis on diversity of coastal area in Bali. So you can guess my concentration at our beloved faculty in Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta. were you at Forest concervation dept.?
So how is your work in West Papua..what are you doing there? I heard there will be conversion of 100 ha forest for Oil Palm plantation..is it right? Tell us in this platform! We are hungry such info directly from the ground..:-).
and..you will get the ticket to study here in Goettingen by next year..I am sure you can make it. but why Goettingen?
Hey Taufik, glad to visit ur profile. Great having some one from he conservation field. I see you work in papua, Indonesia where conservation is really advanced. i also work with a conservation organization but this time around in west Africa specifically Cameroon. Hope we get to chat and exchange ideas a great deal on conservation issues.
alhamdulillah kabarku very well.
wahhhh, Papua yeuh! Salah satu surga buat para environmentalist! Dinas dr Dephut ya? enjoy aja deh disana :)
Kabar idealisme mahasiswa kehutanan?? wah, aku belum nemuin parameternya. tapi yang jelas, based on milis conversations sih, kayaknya (kayaknya) nih ya, jiwa conservationist masih ada di tmn2ku yang udah pada kerja di berbagai sektor. Bahkan mereka pengen jadi the "Conservationist Viruses" buat rekan2 kita yang bekerja di luar sektor kehutanan n gak kenal pendidikan kehutanan (meureun, ceunah mah). Kan gak semua conservationist beruntung bisa bekerja di sektornya.... so, mereka punya prinsip untuk tetap bisa jadi virus konservasi bagi yang lainnya n mudah2an ideologis ini gak terhapus dengan tuntutan ekonomi... let's see..
Mudah2an aja deh....
kalo ade2 mahasiswa, jangan ditanya deh, soale aku dah gak jadi mahasiswa lagi. tapi so far, mereka masih bahkan keep active on conservationist activities (not only theory they got).
hello everybody, young environmentalists, firstly i feel good to know that existance, as im now "seems" in the middle of nowhere managing some forest conservation areas in West Papua Indonesia, and again, its nice to be part of you here. Thanks for the invitation Mika. Lets keep in touch.
great you joined. I hope this page is useful for you. Besides several members from Indonesia, you might also be interested in our groups "ecotourism" and "forestry and climate change".
Feel free to post blogs, contact members and of course ;o) upload pics from West Papua.
Best from Germany
