Biodiversity conservation

The program aims at weakening the illegal wildlife trade, particularly in the endangered and protected greater slow loris, in Sumatra, Indonesia. To achieve this goal, the program cooperates with local government agencies on wildlife protection and operates a rescue and rehabilitation centre for confiscated animals. Furthermore, the program focuses on education, awareness-raising, community engagement activities, and capacity building.

For thirty years, since the late 1980’s, Negros Forest and Ecological Foundation, Inc. (NFEFI), has reforested no less than 1,000 hectares. Their community projects, education programs, and forest protection programs, have successfully transformed communities and lives. The founding of the Biodiversity Conservation Centre (BCC) at the heart of Bacolod City, through the guidance of William Oliver, was the foundation’s showcase project.

The main goal is to help Indonesia to streamline the protection of sea turtles and reduce the illegal sale of turtle products at marketplaces. Further increase public awareness, especially in the Czech Republic, of the situation of sea turtles and the causes of threat to these rare reptiles.

We aim to protect the most valuable parts of the basin of Balikpapan Bay, East Kalimantan, Indonesia. The territory adjacent to the metropolitan city of Balikpapan includes a variety of natural ecosystems – both primary and secondary tropical rain forests, mangroves, coral reefs, and shallow coastal sea. It is home to a range of endangered species of plants and animals, including the Irrawaddy dolphin, dugong, proboscis monkey, orang-utan, gibbons, Malayan sun bear, and clouded leopard.

We are dedicated to the protection and monitoring of cranes. Nowadays, it is mainly Common Crane in the Czech Republic, where we tag and monitor the birds with color rings. We regularly visit cranes’ roosting places and wintering grounds elsewhere in Europe. Detailed monitoring of crane movements is provided by GPS-GSM transmitters. The knowledge of all grounds used by cranes both during nesting and on migration routes is very important for the subsequent conservation of these often critically endangered birds. We want to use our long-term experience in the protection of other cranes species elsewhere in the world.

The project is supported by Ostrava Zoo (GPS-GSM transmitters and operating costs) and Kranichschutz Deutchland (color rings and internet database).

Project aimed at elephant protection in Central Africa (Cameroon, Gabon, Congo, Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo and Nigeria). Increasing pressure from the black market again threatens the remaining living African elephant population strongly. The aim of the project is therefore to detect and combat poaching and above all to prevent it.

Since its foundation, this civic association has been dealing with the issue of environmental protection and its sustainable use, especially in connection with the palm industry. Through its activities, it seeks to extend this topic to all levels of society and in this way to achieve the highest possible awareness of the problems of developing countries in particular, which are mostly affected by the negative aspects of globalization.
