Murielle no anarako :)

Miarahaba antsika rehetra, Murielle no anarako.

Cipaganti tanàna kely aty Indoneziana no misy ahy .Manohy ny fianarana nandritra ny enim- bolana aho. Avo toerana no misy an’ny Cipaganti, tsy mijaly loatra amin’ny hafanana, , mahatratra 90% ny hamandoana, mbola ao anatin’ny vanim-potoana ny orana izao. Betsaka ny ala ary maintso mavana avokoa ny manodidina. Ahitana ny fambolena dite sy labu ihany koa .Mahafinaritra ny mponina aty , ny ankizy matetika no tonga ao amin’ny “trano maitso” mba mangataka fandokoana . Ny foto-sakafo aty dia ny vary, menaka sy ny legioma (indrindra indrindra, satria ny fikarohana fiantsonan’ny ny zavamaniry ity toerana ity), manoro hevitra anareo aho mba hihinana ny sate ayam any Bayangbong raha manam-potoana!

Fikarohana momba ny “loris” karazana gidro kely mandritra ny enim-bolana miaraka amin’ny “The Little Fireface Project” Mandalina ary miezaka hanatsara ny fifandraisana amin’ ny faritra voatokana ianarana. ary faritana amin’ny alalan’ny “agroforestier” hita amin’izany ny fambolena (karaoty, laisoa, dite, kafe, labu …) sy ny ala.

Ny dingana voalohany ny tetikasa dia ny hamantatra ireo faritra mila fifandraisana. Rehefa avy mamantatra izany dia manao tetezana kely vita amin’ny hazo . Mandritra ny fotoana maharitra, any aoriana any samy ahazo tombony na ny tantsaha na ny “loris”. Manantena aho fa ho ampiasaina ireo tetezana ireo.
Ny dingana faharoa ny tetikasa mitaky ny fametrahana ny fakan-tsary fandrika akaikin’ny tetezana ho isaina ny fandalovan’ny “loris”. Mamaritra ny fahombiazan’ny ny fampiharana sy ny vokany io.

Mahaliana ahy ny fianarana ny fitambaran’ny ao eo amin’ny sehatry ny fikarohana biolojika sy ny fiarovana ny fampandrosoana maharitra ny tontolo iainana ao anatin’izany ny fanentanana, fiaraha-monina,fandraisana anjara amin’ny tetikasa sy ny famoronana ny fidiram-bola maharitra ho azy ireo . Manamafy sy mahatoky aho fa ny fomba fandaharana sy ny fiarovana ny tontolo iainana no tsara sy mahomby indrindra. Izay no tanjona kendren’ny “The Little Fireface Project” ary izany no mahatonga ahy faly sy liana manana fahafahana miaraka miasa amin’ny ekipa!

Afaka mandray anjara amin’ny asa samy hafa: mampianatra ny ankizy ao amin’ny “Club Alam”, manentana an’ ireo ankizy ampianatra ny fiarovana ny tontolo iainana toy ny ao Bandung (sarimihetsika , zava- kanto, fanentanana ny mpanatrika amin’ny alalan’ny fizara taratasy fametaka.

Ny “agroforestier” dia fombatetik’asa iray izay tiako ampitaina ao anatin’ny “master” izay ataoko. Ahafahana mampianatra mampiasa ny fitaovana ny fakan-tsary “radiometrie” ,fakana sary fandrika, hanampy ny mpianatra hafa an-tsitrapo ,amin’ny fahaizako mampiasa ny ”logiciels” QGIS sy R.

Ho an’ireo tia zavaboary! afaka mahita bibilava, sahona , “civets”, hala, bibikely, ary mazava ho izany “lories”! raha te-hanorina fialofana ho an’ny ramanavy! Betsaka no azo atao!

Aza misalasala ny mitsidika anay!

Teny vitsivitsy sy voambolana amin’ny andro voalohany aty Indonezia, dia tsy misy fialàna azony!

Miarahaba: selamat pagi / Misaotra Teri makashi / Tsy misy fisaorany: sama sama / Manao ahoana ny fahasalamana? Apa Kabar? / Salama tsara: baik baik / Tsy miteny indonezianina: Saya tidah bahasan Indonezia / avy any Frantsa aho: Saya Dari Prancis / no anarako …: Nama saya …. / Te-handeha ho any …: Saya Mau pergi ke …
Ary farany, tena zava-dehibe, Te-hihinana: saya Mau makan!

Workshop about slow loris in Brunei: A way towards their survival

Hi everyone, my name is Priscillia Miard and I have been working with wild slow lorises since 2012 were I first discovered them in Sabah, Borneo. I did my MSc at Oxford Brookes University after visiting LFP in Indonesia. After finishing my studies in the UK I knew I had to do more to help save slow lorises from extinction. So After my MSc I went to Brunei to meet some amazing people working to save the slow loris and we decided to organise a workshop with the Government for the World Wildlife Day.

Before I present the work we did I would like to share with you my amazing journey in Brunei, a small country on the island of Borneo with amazing forest and wildlife, often underestimated by tourist and scientist. Before I talk to you about what we did there I want to present you Brunei a bit. Brunei have amazing mosque such as the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque. They also have amazing forest, beach and food.

In Brunei slow lorises and other animals are in danger mostly due to pet trade on social media as animals are rarely sold in markets.

It was a long process to find funding to organize this event but we managed to be sponsored by Columbus zoo in the US. This was amazing news as it was my first success at obtaining a grant and organising something this important.

The workshop was designed after work done by LFP since 2007 and with recent scientific findings. Everything went really well and here it goes we organized a workshop on the 2nd of March 2017 with people from the government, from the wildlife Division, customs, tourism, forest department and many more. We also had participants from three local organisations, Brunei Nature Society, BruWild and Heart of Borneo. We invited Nancy L. Gibson founder of LoveWildlife in Thailand to come give us a talk about their work with rescued slow loris.

We also organized a field training to study nocturnal mammals on the 4th of March 2017 at the Tropical Biodiversity centre managed by HOB (Heart of Borneo). All the participants were really happy to learn new facts about slow loris and the importance to use red light to watch nocturnal animals. The work done by LFP is helping slow lorises all over South East Asia and not just in Indonesia.

I just want to thanks Columbus Zoo for their support for this project and Little Fireface Project for the help since the beginning to follow my passion and make this event successful. I would also like to thank everyone in Brunei who helped me along the way to organise this event and make it successful; Bud Chapman, Jungle Dave, Dr Ulmar, Joremy tony, Lin Ji Liaw, Haji Safwan Bibi and Mr Mardani Haji Mahadi head of Wildlife Division, Ministry of Primary Resources & Tourism.

And remember that everything you do everyday have an impact. So just make sure it is the right one, the one that will help us enjoy nature and animals in the future.
