OUR SURVIVAL OVER THE PAST YEAR – HOW HAVE WE DONE IT?

OUR SURVIVAL OVER THE PAST YEAR – HOW HAVE WE DONE IT?

On June 12th 2020, a summary of the current status of the company Ecolodges Indonesia with its four ecolodges, two offices (in Bali and Kalimantan) and our eco-safari business was reported on our Facebook site https://www.facebook.com/EcolodgesIndonesia/posts/3113422895346839       

 

Our report on facebook on 12 June 2020

It is useful, more than 12 months on, for us to remind ourselves where we have come from and how have we achieved it. The Facebook report emphasised two vital areas of activity, our staff, and planned activities of our newly formed NGO the INDONESIA CONSERVATION FOUNDATION – OUR WORLD (ICFOW)  https://ecolodgesindonesia.com/conservation-foundation/ which were Agriculture, Tree Planting, Bird Guide Training and Goat production.

  • Our staff have been led magnificently by the Central Office Team, and, in collaboration with the lodge managers and Board of Directors, have remained intact despite up to 85% cuts in salary. However, the loyal backup of the larger Ecolodges Indonesia global family of supporters has also been essential and so appreciated.
  • The activities of ICFOW have helped us survive and will be needed into the future.  Agriculture has expanded in all lodges in the areas of vegetable production, fruit trees, cloves and coffee, fish culture, and goat and cattle fattening.

  • Achievements include net income from sales pays one month’s total expenditure for Kelimutu, using a rotating fund, Goat production at Satwa, using Zero Grazing at our staff’s homes, have increased salary additions, fish production has commenced in three lodges. All these activities also give a food to our staff.

Tree planting (REWILD TANJUNG PUTING) has created our largest program, where we aim to plant 50,000 forest trees in three years. Our limit is funding as our vision is 1 million trees in this vital area threatened by Palm Oil. Our partner WORLD RELIEF AUSTRALIA aso has  a donation site Bird Guide Training at Mbeliling has trained three staff Stage 1 Guide level. They should be ready to earn extra income in the future.

BAGAIMANA  ECOLODGES INDONESIA BERTAHAN SELAMA PANDEMI – BAGAIMANA CARANYA?

Pada tanggal 12 Juni 2020, ringkasan tentang keadaan Ecolodges Indonesia saat itu dengan empat ecolodges, dua kantor (di Bali dan Kalimantan) dan kegiatan Ecosafari Indonesia telah kami tulis dalam situs Facebook kami https://www.facebook.com/EcolodgesIndonesia/posts/3113422895346839  

Laporan kami di facebook tanggal 12 June 2020

Sekarang sudah hampir lebih dari 12 bulan berlalu, dan penting bagi kami untuk mengingatkan bagaimana perjuangan kami dan cara mencapainya. Laporan Facebook saat itu  menekankan dua area aktivitas vital untuk staf kami, dan aktivitas yang direncanakan dari Yayasan kami yang baru dibentuk, YAYASAN KONSERVASI INDONESIA BUMI KITA https://ecolodgesindonesia.com/conservation-foundation/

yaitu Pertanian, Penanaman Pohon, Pelatihan Pemandu Burung dan Produksi Kambing.

    • Staf kami dengan panduan luar biasa oleh Tim Kantor Pusat di Bali, dan bekerja sama dengan manager masing masing lodge, Dewan Direksi, tetap utuh meskipun ada pemotongan gaji hingga 85%. Namun, dukungan dari keluarga besar pendukung global Ecolodges Indonesia juga penting dan sangat dihargai.
    • Kegiatan yayasan telah membantu kami bertahan dan tetap akan dibutuhkan di masa depan. Pertanian telah berkembang di semua lodge melalui penanaman sayuran, buah-buahan, cengkeh, kopi, budidaya ikan, dan penggemukan kambing dan sapi. Melalui kegiatan tersebut bisa menghasilkan pendapatan untuk membiayai pengeluaran satu bulan untuk Kelimutu. Program dana bergilir untuk pemeliharaan Kambing di Satwa, telah memberikan tambahan pendapatan  untuk staff.Agriculture and vegetable production at Kelimutu – tomat

  • Penanaman pohon (REWILD TANJUNG PUTING) merupakan program terbesar kami, di mana kami menargetkan untuk menanam 50.000 pohon du taman nasional selama tiga tahun. Batasan kami adalah tentang pendanaan, karena visi kami adalah menanam 1 juta pohon di area vital yang terancam oleh perkebunan kelapa sawit. Mitra kami WORLD RELIEF AUSTRALIA juga membantu kami untuk mendapatkan donasi. Pelatihan Pemandu Burung di Mbeliling telah melatih tiga staf tingkat Pemandu Tahap 1. Mereka akan siap untuk mendapatkan penghasilan tambahan di masa depan.
