Selamat Siang (good day)!
Looking back at the first month of 2013, we had a great start! Especially thanks to the Primate Education Network (PEN). Please join us in congratulating our Field Programme Manager, Harry Hilser, in being the Educator of the month January 2013!! Every month, the Primate Education Network receives Educator of the Month nominations and we are proud to say that this time, Harry was chosen! We would like to give special thanks to Amy Clanin, Founder and Executive Director of Primate Education Network!
Please read on PEN’s website about Harry’s inspiration as educator in primate conservation and how PEN helps to contribute to his mission!
The Primate Education Network (PEN) is created by and for educators working in primate education. PEN would like to enhance primate education by facilitating connections between educators in primate habitat countries. For example in Sulawesi, where we have 7 macaque species and several tarsier species, creating awareness about the important roles of these primates in our ecosystems is vital to conservation work. PEN would like to help conservation programmes, like Selamatkan Yaki, by providing connections, resources and services.
We, at Selamatkan Yaki, are happy to be part of such a great network!
