Last week, Arif, the manager of Pondok Ambung Tropical Forest Research Station represented the Orangutan Foundation at a national trade exhibition, Harkopnas, in Palangkaraya, Central Kalimantan (Borneo). It was a great opportunity to introduce our work, talk about orangutans and the importance of the rainforest to Indonesian businesses and other parties.
The exhibition was open by the Vice President of Indonesia, Bapak Prof. Boediono. During the busy exhibition Arif met with the new head of Central Kalimantan Agency for the Conservation of Natural Resources (BKSDA), Pak Kholid, one of our key partners. Arif said it was very exciting to be present there and have the chance to talk about our work.
