I'm interested in people, who aren't indifferent to the events that surround us, to people with adventurous hearts, that are willing to stand by their dreams and ideals at the expense of their personal comfort and who are willing to take risks, taking actions head first and at full throttle. Collaboration with such people gives me
a meaning, that's why I'm in CCBC - with people that I hold in high esteem, which
I adore and who inspire me and give me hope.
CCBC is a platform bringing together people interested in nature preservation and sustainable development of human society. Thanks to CCBC we gained
an overview on animal trade. Besides the Slow Loris trade we have general knowledge of trading with other species such as elephants, turtles etc. Such coalitions, enabling sharing of information and cooperation between organizations with similar aims, should work worldwide. We are proud to be part of this unique project, originally an idea coming from the Czech Republic, from people who are not indifferent to the fate of nature, animals
and people in other parts of the world.
I'm on horseback! And I'm not alone in that. Czech Coalition brings not only interesting conservation programs around the world for the protection of biodiversity, but also puts the emphasis on their transparency
and efficiency. It is necessary to use not only your heart but mainly to involve the brain to protect the nature and related sustainable development. As is well known, more heads are better than one and therefore I perceive the formation of the Coalition as a major turning point
in conservation and development activities
of Czech, which leads to their efficiency
and control. This is something what is completely missing and it leads, unfortunately, to a large Falters.
Thanks to CCBC we can now prevent to it.
The project morskezelvy.cz (sea turtles)
is part of CCBC because I believe,
it is important to move between like-minded people, to inspire, motivate
and help each other.
CCBC is, for me, one of the ways that the project can teach people, both people going to the tropics, who can meet directly with turtles, and people who can engage with such a project, and can help us here from the Czech Republic.
We welcome the opportunity to join the CCBC, a coalition whose members are also focused on addressing environmental issues
in developing countries.
We hope to learn here from more established NGOs. And conversely,
we can help implement our knowledge
of environmental education of children, beyond Indonesia.

Elephants do not live alone in any stage
of their lives. Even oldest males stay
in permanent contact with large matriarchal herds and baby elephants are accompanied by their mothers all the time. Save-Elephants initiative is in this inspired by elephants and proudly claims to be part of the "CCBC herd". Together, in this large, strong and diverse group, we can try
to help elephants. For instance we can find water even during the dry season, chase away a pack of hungry lions,
help baby elephants in need or attract photographers and tourists to come
to certain poor areas to support
the development and protection
of biodiversity there.
Project/ Foundation “TALARAK is proud member of CCBC community.
We are focusing our efforts mainly on EX_CITU conservation of the Critically Endangered species of West Visayan Faunal Region. We would like to focus more attention to IN-CITU activities like biodiversity surveys of the species
in question in its natural habitat, biodiversity conservation, conservation education however, we do not have enough resources and expertise for this... and here we come to the main example /reason why we need CCBC which mission beside others
is to enable, connect and give deeper complexity to our efforts. We all do amazing stuff but we always follow the path which we know best and are most confident with. CCBC gives us the key how to “fill up the gaps “, so our individual projects can address wide spectrum of important issues and gain attention of wider audience
as well as achieve respect and recognition from the local authorities such us a single NGO can only dream.
Nature preservation cannot be handled by one individual neither by single organisation. Cooperation among many different subjects should be the key to success in environmentalist’s work.
However, as practice proves, personal rivalry, competition for publicity and limited resources sometimes prevail over common efforts and unified vision. Thus I really appreciate how several Czech organisations had succeeded in finding their shared path and united under CCBC coalition. I am glad I could be part of it with our programme in Indonesia.
People often feel that they can not influence what is happening around
them and they are afraid to go ahead. Organizations like CCBC help their members to exchange experiences
and inspire each other. We are team, because more heads are better than one, and we help because when we pull together as a team, we have a better chance to do something good for the world around us - that's why we are CCBC!

Maendeleo promotes environmentally friendly and effective farming practices
in Tanzania. We believe that agriculture
is one of the keys for biological diversity conversation. We perceive CCBC
as a group of NGOs which are aware
of a strong relation between sustainable development of human society
and protection of nature. Membership
in CCBC provided us with an opportunity
to be in touch and to share the experience with other volunteer-based organizations with similar focus.
Bikes for Africa
I believe that none of us, who are reading these lines right now, have ever experienced true shortage of any kind.
It may be for this reason that not everyone understands why exactly Africa, why bicycles, why humanitarian
and development aid in general. Children all around the world are not born into welfare of a kind that we experience here in the heart of Europe. From an early age they struggle with various difficulties which they haven’t chosen of their own free will and they are often unable to change or influence them. In Gambia where our help
is aimed children don’t have
an easy access to education.
The distance from their homes to school is a number of kilometres that they walk on a daily basis, which of course calls for a lot of energy and time. The result
is more often than not that their parents allow them to stay at home and help make a living and education, which has a direct effect on children’s future, steps aside. By means of bicycles donated by donors from the Czech Republic
we wish to open the path to education for these kids. To help those who need
it is not a duty, it is a virtue of an open human being. To help those who need
it brings fruit on many sides. Based
on reactions of Czech people to project Czech Bikes for Gambian Schools
and to helping others in general I feel that being open to the needs of those
in need is a natural part of every human being, which is great news.

In global scale the Czech Republic is
a small country, however, incredibly rich
for passionate people establishing NGOs all around the world in order to reduce negative impacts modern lifestyle has
on our enviroment. CCBC brings together people, projects and organizations which are doing their job honestly. We provide our members with consultancy, contacts and opportunities for deeper cooperation. In CCBC we are proud that Czechs
who work around the world pay attention
to global threats of our world and we appreciate that we can be part of it.
I have read that the Czech film studio Bratři v triku - “Brothers in T-Shirts” - consisted of one hundred artists who were able to create an animated film per year together. One artist would work on it for hundred years so basically the film would have never been made. Conservation projects assiting local communities have quite similar background. As an individual you can leave a trace behind but when cooperating with others you can create
Trust, sharing of human, financial and material resources and even occasional failures to learn from... core values which were, and still are, foundation
of CCBC. I am glad to be part of, sometimes complicated, but generally wonderful group of people. I learn a lot from young enthusiastic and motivated people and maybe I can even hand them over some experience.
I consider Biodiversity protection as one of the most important global challenges. Virtually any negative change in the environment is reversible, and sooner or later reparable (such as water or air pollution). However the extinction
of plant and animal species is change of irreversibility and irreparability.
With each vanished species is life
on this planet a little poorer and sadder.
When you pretend at your age of 6 years old playing game of “helping” to Josef Vagner in hunting giraffes, it is only
a few decades to CCBC and protection
of biodiversity. Meanwhile, I had been many times convinced, that nature
in general and biodiversity are particularly declining, and especially
in tropical areas. I am very happy that CCBC managed to focus on projects that keep trying to confront all these negative developments with all the greater enthusiasm, personal commitment and with Czech ingenuity, although with meager budgets.
Environmentalist is often considered naïve activist, at the best, or ecoterrorist, at the worst. We do not chain ourselves anywhere nor hang any billboards. Our goal is to help people and animals by continual work, education and by breaking down stereotypes which are not leading to improvement.

In relation to biodiversity I am interested in one particular species, which is Homo Sapiens belonging
to hominid family, as a source of threat toour habitat, while being inspiring.
In this respect, CCBC for me is an alliance of organizations that do not dream about tropics, but actively work in them - with planetary potential and ability to execute.
