    Nono: Bags of initiative

    January 6, 2016 in Indonesia

    Meet Nono, who gave up his job as a lawyer to become a park ranger at Barat National Park in Bali.

    He set up an initiative encouraging the local people and fishermen to collect the rubbish that they find floating in the sea. In return he makes them a bag!

    This idea was so popular that now he employs 7 people from the local village to make these fabulous bags.

    Its not everyday that you meet someone who is truly passionate about what they do, however these bags are a true labour of love.

    It takes each person one day to make one bag. However he is keen to expand his program. The money he makes from making the bags is put back into his education and awareness drive.

    He's on a mission: To clean up the sea and to stop people using plastic bags.

    The truth is, Nono is so much more than just a Park Ranger. He is a visionary and a passionate educator. He is keen to share his knowledge with locals and tourists alike. He regulary organises volunteers to help care for the coral reefs and is just about to start a school to help other local guides learn better english so they can help spread the word about wildlife and marine conservation.

    His charming manner and true love of what he does, makes his enthusiasm contageous.

    This is a man on a mission.

    If you would like to buy a bag, either let us know or contact Nono directly at nono.friendsofnature@gmail.com

    Alternatively you can follow his progress on facebook

    Menjangang

    September 14, 2016 in Indonesia

    Geweldig kunnen snorkelen aan de kust van het eilandje Menjangang. De eerste 30 meter vanaf de kant waren niet heel diep maar dan opeens kwam je een steile wand tegen die recht omlaag liep. Voorbij dit punt keek je in het diepe blauwe van de zee. Het rif zat vol leven en we hebben superveel vissen gezien. Ook was het leuk om langs de muur naar beneden te duiken en iedereen op de oppervlakte te zien zwemmen. We zouden twee snorkel locaties aandoen maar we konden de schipper overtuigen voor een derde. Heerlijk dagje zo!Read more

    Menjangen Island

    August 15, 2016 in Indonesia

    Am Montag haben wir eine Tour von Lovina in den 'Taman Nasional Bali Barat' (Nationalpark) gemacht. Dort gibt es eine kleine Insel an der man super gut schnorcheln und tauchen kann. Mit einem kleinen Holzboot ging's dann auf die Insel. Wir entschieden uns für eine Schnorcheltour und waren begeistert von der Vielfalt der bunten Fische, Koralen und Seeigeln (wir haben zum ersten Mal Nemo gefunden). Abends gönnten wir uns noch eine leckere Pizza in einem Restaurant am Strand mit Blick auf den Sonnenuntergang, da wir langsam keinen Reis mehr sehen können.Read more
