On the 19th June 2015, people from around the world won’t need to leave the comfort of their homes to experience the amazing diversity of life found in tropical rainforests.

Pada 19 Juni 2015, orang-orang dari seluruh dunia tidak perlu meninggalkan rumah nyaman mereka untuk merasakan keanekaragaman hayati yang luar biasa dari kehidupan yang ditemukan di hutan hujan tropis.

Conservation organisations will be using social media to share live wildlife sightings from the rainforest as part of an exciting initiative called #RainforestLive

Organisasi-organisasi konservasi akan menggunakan media sosial untuk membagikan pemandangan satwaliar dari hutan hujan sebagai salah satu bagian yang menarik dari inisiatif yang disebut #RainforestLive

Now in its second year, Rainforest: Live is a project initiated by the Orangutan Tropical Peatland Project (OuTrop), a research and conservation organisation based in Indonesian Borneo. This year, 16 other tropical conservation organisations will join forces to share their experiences living and working in these beautiful and diverse habitats during this special one-day event.

Ini merupakan tahun kedua, Rainforest: Live adalah proyek inisiatif dari Orangutan tropical Peatland Project (OuTrop), sebuah organisasi penelitian dan konservasi berbasis di Kalimantan Indonesia. Tahun ini, 16 oranisasi konservasi lainnya akan bergabung untuk membagikan pengalaman-pengalaman mereka tinggal dan bekerja di tempat hidup yang indah dan beraneka raga dalam satu hari iven yang istimewa.

As OuTrop’s Matt Williams explains, this event is all about positivity, “So much of the media coverage of rainforests is negative, concentrating on habitat and species losses. While this is important, Rainforest: Live is designed to focus on the diversity of life in forests and the amazing species that conservationists are fighting to protect. It is to remind us all why they’re worth saving.”

Matt Williams OuTrop menjelaskan, iven ini adalah tentang semua hal positif, “Banyak sekali penyampaian media tentang hutan hujan yang negatif, terkonsentrasi pada kehilangan spesies dan habitat. Dimana ini sangat penting, Rainforest: Live yang didesain untuk fokus pada keanekaragaman dari kehidupan hutan serta spesies-spesies luar biasa yang sedang dilindungi oleh para konservasionis. Ini adalah untuk mengingatkan kita mengapa mereka butuh dilindungi.”

Last year, Rainforest: Live reached hundreds of thousands of people using the hashtag #rainforestlive on Facebook and Twitter. Sightings of species, from the endangered and iconic orangutan and the yaki to the colourful and spectacular hornbill, were shared with followers.

Tahun lalu, rainforest: Live menjangkau ratusan ribu orang yang menggunakan hashtag #rainforestlive di Facebook dan Twitter. Pemandangan spesies, dari terancam sampai ikonis orangutan dan Yaki sampai pada rangkong yang berwarna dan spektakuler, dibagikan dengan banyak orang.

Gavin Thurston, OuTrop Patron and wildlife cameraman photographer & Filmmaker, said “through my career as a wildlife cameraman I have been fortunate enough to visit and film in some splendid rainforests. It is an environment that I feel remarkably at home in and am constantly surprised and thrilled by the hidden beauty and complexity of life that has evolved to live and thrive there.”

“I realise that not everyone is lucky enough to visit a rainforest in their lifetime so I am delighted that Rainforest: Live will give many people the opportunity to experience this incredible and diverse world,” said Thurston. “I’m excited to see what wildlife will show up live from the rainforest.”AWalmsley-SY-2014-Yaki-Web-034

Gavin Thurston, Kameraman dan Fotografer dari OuTrop mengatakan, “melalui karir saya sebagai kameraman satwaliar, saya telah sangat beruntung untuk mengunjungi serta merekam beberapa hutan hujan yang luar biasa. Ini merupakan lingkunngan yang membuat saya merasa seperti di rumah dan terus terkejut dan senang dengan keindahan tersembunyi dan kompleksitas kehidupan yang telah berevolusi untuk hidup dan berkembang di sana.”

“Saya menyadari bahwa tidak semua orang cukup beruntung untuk mengunjungi hutan hujan dalam hidup mereka jadi saya senang bahwa Rainforest: Live akan memberikan banyak orang kesempatan untuk mengalami dunia yang luar biasa dan beragam ini,” kata Thurston. “Saya bersemangat untuk melihat apa satwa liar akan muncul langsung dari hutan hujan.”

Thirza Loffeld, Education and Advocacy Coordinator for Selamatkan Yaki mentioned that “though the Indonesian island Sulawesi knows many endemic species, a large number of the local communities here are not aware of the unique wildlife that they share the island with. During Rainforest: Live, alongside other participating conservationists, Selamatkan Yaki will take the opportunity to give the public insight in the life of Macaca nigra, locally known as yaki, from Tangkoko Nature Reserve in North Sulawesi. This beautiful reserve holds the largest connected population of this Critically Endangered primate species across its native range, in addition to many other unique species of wildlife.”

Thirza Loffeld, Koordinator Pendidikan dan Advokasi untuk Selamatkan Yaki menyebutkan bahwa “meskipun pulau kecil Indonesia,Sulawesi, diketahui memiliki banyak spesies endemik, sejumlah besar masyarakat lokal di sini tidak menyadari akan satwa liar unik yang hidup berbagi pulau dengan mereka. Selama Rainforest: Live, berdampingan dengan peserta konservasionis  lainnya , Selamatkan Yaki akan mengambil kesempatan untuk memberikan wawasan publik dalam kehidupan Macaca nigra, yang dikenal sebagai yaki, dari Cagar Alam Tangkoko di Sulawesi Utara. Cagar alam yang indah ini memegang populasi terhubung terbesar dari spesies primata terancam punah di seluruh jangkauan aslinya, di antara banyak spesies satwa liar unik lainnya.”
