It is the world’s centre of marine life, which millions depend on to survive. But overfishing and climate change are threatening to destroy this natural treasure. You can help—but there isn’t much time.

You can buy a cup of coffee, or you can save 75% of world’s coral species! You can pay ur daily parking fee, or you can save 6 of 7 world’s marine turtle species! You can get a haircut, or you can feed 120 million of people!

WWF has just launched a new program for saving the Coral Triangle. Above attractive video is the official video from WWF for the program.

This is a very amazing program, I just can’t  stop being amazed by how this organization can reach to the people in a very innovative way. It’s also make it so easy for us to understand what’s happening in the world due to our destructive behaviour, and how we can easily (or easier to) help to prevent it. You should learn more about the program by going to the link below (at the very bottom of this post). It’s very interesting and such a feast to the eyes as well …

Moreover, as I said about how WWF is so great when providing a program, you can also buy a spot or more at the Coral Triangle in order for saving it, just by going to the source link (at the very bottom of this post) . A spot is just US$5! How great is that?! 😀

It’s very simple to do, when you go to the link, find and click on “Save the Coral Triangle. Buy a spot now”. You will then be served with a google map showing the Coral Triangle areas, and there you can choose a spot to buy. You can buy by using your Paypal account or Visa Credit Cards/ Debit Cards. Remember, the more spots you buy, the more you can do to help it 🙂

Thank you WWF for giving us the chance to help the world! So that we can always live in harmony with the nature.

Btw, look at these people… I’m so happy and glad knowing that there are still so many people care for the world. Don’t you think so? :’)

Come, let’s save them.. together. There is just not much time left.

Happy World Environment Day 2009 guyz 🙂

Today, June 5, 2009, HOME — a film by Yann Arthus – Bertrand, start playing on 3 continents in movies, televisions, DVDs and internet.

It is an extraordinary beautifully captured movie containing stunning images of world exploration including famous pictures by Arthus-Bertrand along with informative texts provided by Good Planet team–a non-profit organization promoting environment protection.

HOME is exploring more than 50 countries, showing current environment conditions of each country and what factors will take role in the future. Watching this movie will contribute to WWF Indonesia. Let’s watch it to enrich our knowledge while saving our home 🙂

In 200.000 years on Earth humanity has upset the balance of the planet, established by nearly four billion years of evolution. The price to pay is high, but it’s too late to be a pessimist: humanity has barely ten years to reverse the trend, become aware of the full extent of its spoliation of the Earth’s riches and change its patterns of consumption.

By bringing us unique footage from over fifty countries, all seen from the air, by sharing with us his wonder and his concern, with this film Yann-Arthus Bertrand lays a foundation stone for the edifice that, together, we must rebuild (home-2009.com).

Do you want to have your own baby tree? At the real forest?

Now we can! ^^

The WWF made a website called www.mybabytree.org. Just like the web name, it is the web where we can plant a tree or more at the Indonesian rainforest, located at Borneo (Kalimantan) with just by paying US$5.50 for each baby tree using a paypal. Here is more information from the website:

1. What happens after I pay for my baby tree?
After you’ve paid, you will immediately receive an email confirming your payment. And in around two weeks we will email you a kmz link that you can use to locate your baby tree on Google Earth.

2. I can’t seem to find my baby tree.
Once you’ve donated, in around two weeks we will send a kmz link to your email. This link contains the coordinates of your newly planted baby tree. But in order for the kmz link to work, make sure that you have downloaded Google Earth before hand. Click here to download: www.googleearth.com

3. I’ve paid but there’s no news regarding my baby tree.

It takes us around two weeks after the time of your donation, to plant your baby tree and Geo-tag it.Then we will send you an email notifying you of the successful planting of your baby tree. In the email you will also receive a kmz link. Use this link (program) to pin point the exact location of your newly planted baby tree. But in order for it to work, you need to have Google Earth installed first. Click here to download your Google Earth: www.googleearth.com

4. How many people have planted so far?
We’ve had people from all over the world planting their baby trees. So far 1,300 baby trees have been planted. You can see the entire planting grid area on Google Earth.

5. Have other people already seen their trees on Google Earth?
Yes! Thousands of proud baby tree owners have seen their trees on Google Earth. And we have received hundreds of emails from everyone around the globe telling us how happy they are seeing their cute baby trees on Google Earth.


6. Can I buy more than one baby tree?

Of course you can. Just type the number of baby trees that you want to plant, in the Paypal box, on the left hand bottom corner of the web page.

7. Will I get news about my baby tree on my snail mail or on my Paypal account?
Neither. We will send you an email to the address you use to log in to your Paypal account.

8. What’s the most number of trees anyone ever bought?
Ms. Luna Maya from Jakarta, Indonesia has planted 100 baby trees.

9. How often can I check for updates and how do I do it?
Updates would depend on how often Google Earth refreshes their satellite images. Visibility of rain forest areas also depends on cloud cover. To check your baby tree, just click on the kmz link and it will automatically direct you to where your tree is planted.

10. How do I use Google Earth?
Google Earth is very easy to use. Once you’ve clicked on your kmz link you will immediately be directed to Google Earth. Now simply click on the NEWtrees link on the left column of your page. When clicked, you will automatically be pin pointed to the planting grid of your baby tree. Then you can easily navigate more by using the tools located on the top right hand corner of your page.

The very grand series of Discovery Channel ever made!
From ants to the biggest organism on earth, this will be our most precious moment to watch the life on earth. The shoot took 5 years, taken on 204 places, in 60 countries, by 40 highly-skilled cameramen.

Most of the scenes have never been captured on film before. Have you seen the “Inconvenience Truth” by Al Gore? On that documentation, there is an animation scene of a polar bear swimming miles and miles away trying to find a block of ice to stand on. Now, in this Planet Earth series, you’ll finally see the REAL SCENE of it. It’s a heartbroken moment to watch indeed. But that’s the art of it, you’ll feel very intimate with the animals.

The heat has been increasing a lot.
I never sweat when just walking under the sun for around 10 minutes, but I do these days. And it’s not just a little sweat. Even makes my shirt all soaked up.
Some people around says, “now we sweat like a pig”. That makes me curious to find out how many degrees has increased in here.

According to the information from The Meteorology and Geophysical Institute, the heat in Indonesia has increased 1.4 Celcius degrees per 100 years in July 2007, compared to the data of average temperatures from year 1870 to 2000.
It’s really concerning since the standard global heating is only 0.7 Celcius degrees, which means the heating in Indonesia is twice from it’s supposed to be.

It will affecting the water movement. Extreme rain season and flooding will come to Indonesia.
