The National Park parks and Sanctuaries we will visit are home to many rare and interesting species, But it is the set of 5 species - Rhinos, Orangutans, Gibbons, Elephants and Sun Bears - that we are directly supporting that we come here to visit. The expedition is conducted by Garry Sundin whose Orangutan Odysseys travel agency has already helped 200 people experience the trip of a lifetime and has raised over $250,000 for wildlife conservation.
Poacha Poacher is the creation of a brand, beginning with a cool, urban and clothing line that targets the general market rather than the conservationist. The proposed changes to the spatial plan, which governs land use in the province, would re-zone large areas of protected forest in Aceh for industrial activities, including nearlya million hectares for mining, 416,086 ha for logging, and 256,250 ha for oil palm plantations.
New population estimates for the Sumatran Rhino were revealed this week at a crisis summit in Singapore, convened by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The new estimates indicate that there were likely to be fewer than 100 individuals and represent a significant drop on the previous estimate of between 160 and 200 individual animals. The Sumatran Rhinoceros is the smallest of the five remaining rhino species and is a relative of the Ice Age Woolly Rhinoceros. For the first time, the Indonesian and Malaysian governments agreed to work in collaboration to save the Critically Endangered Sumatran rhino and will now work to urgently implement a two year Emergency Action Plan which will hopefully result in a boost in wild population numbers and protection of existing and potential rhino habitat. Significant funding support will be required from international NGOs and Governments to ensure effective and timely implementation of these initiatives. Asian Rhino Project Director, Clare Campbell, said ‘The frightening decline in Sumatran rhino estimates demonstrate that the current strategy is not working. Despite a devasting few months of poaching in Kazaringa, a census has revealed an increase in the population, now standing at 2329. Sending a big thank you to RARE BAGS for their kind donation of yet another awesome conservation bag. An aged rhino died today after getting stuck in the mud in the Kaziranga National Park, Park officials said. The male rhino was stuck in Borbeel near Haldibari beat under Kohora range of the Park since last night.
Forest officials termed the death as "natural" and removed the horn which would be kept in the custody of the forest department. Altogether, 64 rhinos died this year in the Park with 22 due to natural causes and 23 in floods while 19 were killed by poachers.
Experts in Indonesia have started to artificially inseminate Sumatran rhinoceros in an effort to boost the birth rate of thecritically endangered species. The technique, believed to be the first in the world for rhinoceros, is being introduced at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary in Lampung,Sumatra.
Four-month-old Andatu -- a male Sumatran rhinoceros -- is only the fourth to be born in a breeding facility in more than a century.
With less than 200 left in the wild, the Sumatran species is the world's most endangered rhinoceros due to it being killed for itshorns and its natural habitat destroyed by plantations. Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park (BBS) and Way Kambas National Park (WK) in Sumatra, Indonesia, are two of the three major habitats for Sumatran rhino, and are also two of the highest priority areas for other threatened megafauna, including the Sumatran tiger and Sumatran elephant. IRF and YABI, operate 7 Rhino Protection Units in BBS and 5 Rhino Protection Units in Way Kambas. Rhino Protection Units (RPUs) are highly-trained, four-person anti-poaching teams that intensively patrol key areas within Indonesia’s national parks. Thanks to the Rhino Protection Units, there have been no incidences of poaching of Sumatran rhinos in Bukit Barisan and Way Kambas National Parks in Sumatra for the past 6 years. During the first quarter of 2011, the RPUs operating in Bukit Barisan Selatan and Way Kambas destroyed 91 traps (primarily intended for birds, deer and wild pigs) and made a total of 15 arrests. The Sumatran rhino RPUs averaged 17 days per month on patrol during the first three months of the year, walking a total of 759 km. Thirty of the RPU members attended a week-long training in MIST (Management Information System), led by staff from the Wildlife Conservation Society.
The SRS is a 250-acre complex located within Way Kambas National Park in Sumatra, Indonesia funded primarily through the International Rhino Foundation and the Asian Rhino Project. Sumatran rhinos are difficult to breed in captivity, and we have not yet had a successful pregnancy at the SRS. Unfortunately, in April 2011, Torgamba, the elderly male Sumatran rhino (estimated to be 32 years old), died at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary, following a long illness which appeared to be associated with chronic renal disease. Despite several years of treatment for his chronic illness, and the best efforts of the Sanctuary’s keepers and veterinary staff in consultation with international rhino experts, Torgamba passed away. In partnership with the Cincinnati Zoo, the SRS will also begin working on an artificial insemination program, to help increase the likelihood of pregnancies, and to help bank sperm for global conservation and breeding efforts. Feel free to download the pamphlets and posters and spread the word about the rhinos and important conservation projects we are supporting. Poached for their horn, the rhino are shot, snared, trapped, poisoned or electrocuted for this keratin substance similar to our fingernails and hair.


Last year also saw the extinction of two subspecies (Vietnamese Javan Rhino and Western Black Rhino). Come and do your bit to help save the rhinos!Hold an event for world rhino day and let us know about it. T-Enami.org - A Welcome, all who like old Photos of Japan !YOU ARE ONE OF OVER 100,000 VISITORS TO THIS SITE.
The expedition is accompanied by Clare Campbell, the Director of Wildlife Asia who has extensive experience in the conservation of wildlife in Indonesia, particularly gibbons and rhinos. In 10 years we have grown to be one of the leading non for profit organisations for asian rhino conservation, and have donated over $2.3 million AUD to projects throughout South East Asia, India and Nepal. The brand is raising awareness about wildlife issues and creates a sustained income for Wildlife Asia’s conservation projects.
More recently, a Toronto-listed mining company has claimed to be working closely with the Indonesian government to strip the protected status of some 1.6 million hectares forest on the island of Sumatra. The area is also home to tigers, elephants and sunbears making it the last forest in Sumatra to contain the Big 5 mega fauna of Indonesia.
The rhinos exist in five fragmented and widely dispersed populations in Sumatra and Borneo. RARE BAGS make bags with conservation messages out of reused and recycled materials, and are great supporters of non for profit organisations.
Just recently, the sanctuary recorded the birth of a naturally conceived Sumatran rhinoceros. They monitor threatened wildlife, deactivate traps and snares, identify and apprehend illegal intruders, including poachers, and investigate crime scenes, thus preventing or reducing the loss of wildlife. The RPUs also protect numerous other threatened species, including tigers, elephants, tapirs, monkeys, leopards and fishing cats. They conducted 6 investigations on illegal logging and 26 investigations on illegal encroachment, and destroyed 8 illegal camps or cabins within the parks. Female Ratu became pregnant by young male Andalas twice in 2010, but unfortunately miscarried both pregnancies, which is not uncommon. All animals are monitored on a daily basis by the Sanctuary’s two veterinarians and are immediately treated for any health problems that may arise. The Sumatran Rhino (population 200), Javan Rhino (population 44) and Indian Rhino (population 3250) are of the most endangered rhino on the planet.
The horn is primarily used in traditional Chinese medicines and hangover tonics even though there is no scientific proof it works.
Already this year’s toll has reached over 400 and is estimated to reach over 500 by the New Year!
10,000 copies of the book have been distributed free of charge to Indonesian children living close to Javan rhinos in Ujung Kulon National Park and Sumatran rhinos in Way Kambas National Park. We will see both wild and rehabilitated animals and have the opportunity to be educated by resident experts about all the various species we visit. Poacha Poacher is an innovative side step from the traditional fundraising methods of non profit organisations.
Aceh’s forests are also critical for regulating water flows in both the monsoon and drought seasons to irrigate rice fields and other cash crops as well as being essential to food security. All five rhinos are available to adopt right now, with all proceeds going directly to the Sanctuary.
One other species, the Javan rhino, is also critically endangered with only an estimated 35 to 50 rhinos left in Ujung Kulon National Park in Java. The goal of the RPU program is to prevent the extinction of Sumatran rhinos and other threatened species and to protect critical habitats Sumatra through proactive prevention of poaching and habitat destruction.
In partnership with park rangers and local police in BBS, the Rhino Protection Units there undertook joint intelligence operations resulting in the arrests of 7 suspects for trade in illegal wildlife parts. The Way Kambas RPUs also destroyed 2 bridges built to provide illegal access into the park, and halted three illegal fishing operations. This methodology has great potential for the RPU work, particularly in putting the rhino data in a central database for the parks, which will be accessible to the park authorities. At the SRS, the rhinos reside in large, open areas where they can experience a natural rainforest habitat while still receiving state-of-the-art veterinary care and nutrition. SRS staff used all the tools at their disposal (including a hormone supplementation protocol developed at the Cincinnati Zoo, the only facility to successfully breed Sumatran rhinos within the past century) to help ensure that Ratu was able to bring her next pregnancy to term. Illegal logging and human encroachment is seeing the rapid destruction of Asia’s forest and all its inhabitants including the Asian rhino.
The children of Indonesia represent the future change in beliefs and attitudes towards rhinos, and the book program hopes to improve the future for both Javan and Sumatran rhinoceroses, as well as for their closest friend and ally, the people of Southeast Asia. The main cause of the initial decline of Sumatran rhinos was poaching for horn, which is used in traditional Chinese medicine.


Two of these suspects were arrested in possession of small pieces of ivory and tiger and leopard skins; five were arrested in possession of spears, deer antlers, and two large pieces of ivory (which they had advertised for sale at US $5,000 each).
MIST provides a standardized format for recording movements of patrol teams and recording observations of illegal activity and carcasses, and so will be useful for identifying gaps in patrol coverage, emerging threats and problems, and for surveillance of known crime hotspots. Please take action now by donating here , with US$70,000 urgently needed to pay for legal fees to fight and stop this plan. Now, the populations are also limited by available habitat, which is continuously being encroached by human populations.
MIST also provides a way of producing important status and distribution information on rhinos, elephants, tigers and other key species, which can also feed into national monitoring programs set up for these species. Rosa, the other young female rhino at the SRS, is also being regularly introduced to Andalas. We believe implementing this system will further improve our intelligence and law enforcement activities, resulting in even more arrests and successful prosecutions of poachers and others committing illegal activities. OTHERWISE, BEGIN SCROLLING DOWN FOR A TREASURE-TROVE OF RARE AND BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS OF OLD JAPAN.
ENAMI WEARING SAMURAI ARMOR, TAKING A REST BETWEEN POSES IN HIS YOKOHAMA STUDIO, CA.1898-1900. ENAMI, OTHER WELL-KNOWN JAPANESE PHOTOGRAPHERS WHO OPERATED DURING THE MEIJI-ERA (1868-1912) ARE MENTIONED THROUGHOUT THE COMMENTS.I HOPE YOU FIND THE STORY AND DATA BOTH INTERESTING AND HELPFUL.
FOR THOSE WHO ARE HERE PRIMARILY TO LOOK AT THE IMAGES, I HOPE THAT YOU EXPERIENCE SOME ENJOYMENT IN GAZING AT A FEW OF ENAMI'S"LOST PICTURES" OF OLD JAPAN. THOSE THAT LIVE FOR DISCOVERING NEW DATA AND CONNECTING THE DOTS WILL NO DOUBT FIND SOME EYE-OPENING REVELATIONS HERE.A OF COURSE, WE ALL LOVE KIMBEI KUSAKABE AND THE REST OF THOSE ILLUSTRIOUS JAPANESE PIONEERS OF PHOTOGRAPHY WHO GOT THEIR START LONG BEFORE ENAMI OPENED HIS OWN MEIJI-ERA STUDIO. THEIR BEST WORK IS ENOUGH TO TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY.HOWEVER, ENAMI ALSO HAD HIS FANS AND FRIENDS, BOTH AS A PERSON AND AS A PHOTOGRAPHER. AS YOU SCROLL DOWN THESE PAGES, FOR A FEW MOMENTS YOU MAY STEP INTO ENAMI'S SHOES, AND TAKE A PEAK THROUGH HIS LENS.A LIKE SO MANY OTHERS --- SOME NOW FAMOUS, BUT MOST BEING FORGOTTEN --- ENAMI DEDICATED HIS LIFE TO CAPTURING, AS BOTH ART AND DOCUMENT,A WORLD THAT WAS QUICKLY VANISHING BEFORE HIS EYES. AS THIS SITE IS A PERSONAL HOMAGE TO ENAMI, YOU WILL FIND SOME AMATEUR ELEMENTS, AND THE OCCASIONAL PITFALL. AT ALL TIMES, PLEASE "EAT THE MEAT, AND SPIT OUT THE BONES" WHILE DIGGING FOR VISUAL TREASURE.DISCOVERING THE OCCASIONAL GEM OF A PICTURE, OR ODD BIT OF INFORMATION, WILL HOPEFULLY MAKE THE SCROLLING WELL WORTH IT. The general wording seen above was fairly common to all photographic self-promotion during the Meiji-era, and actually contains less specifics than some of his studio ads which he placed in various guide books of the time. OGAWA, who was actually a year younger than Enami, was still his "elder" in terms of experience. It was photographed by Enami's friendly competitor and neighbor Kozaburo Tamamura, whose studio was located at No.2 Benten Street. It would be built in 1894 just down the street on the right hand side, and appear in endless views and postcards as the most recognizable landmark of Benten Street.
Other images of Enami's studio -- both interior and exterior views -- are shown farther down on this page.A  While offering many of the same services and productions as his contemporaries, he also engaged in other activities that made him unique. Further, while no photographer did "everything", Enami worked and published in more processes and formats than any other Japanese photographer of his time.
A He was one of only a few photographers born during Japan's old Edo-Bakumatsu period, who went on to photograph right through to the Showa period of Emperor Hirohito.Enami was also one of the few to experience, and then successfully outgrow his roots as a traditional maker of the classic, large-format "Yokohama Shashin" albums. While successfully embracing the smaller stereoview and lantern slide formats, he added to that a portfolio of Taisho-era "street photography" that maintained his own unique and artistic content.
Enami and Kimbei Kusakabe are now the only two Japanese photographers known to have a surviving list of their commercial 2-D images. While Enami's 2-D portfolio contained a sprinkling of older, public domain images, his 3-D images and slides made from them were wholly his own.A THE 3-D CATALOG "S 26. Girls Looking at Pictures" A Maiko and two Geisha Looking at Stereoviews in Enami's Yokohama Studio.
One of over 1000 cataloged 3-D images of old Japan.A THE "CATALOG OF COLORED LANTERN SLIDES AND STEREOSCOPIC VIEWS"A  Not surprisingly, Enami matched his older Catalog of Meiji-era Prints with a separately published catalog of his classic STEREOVIEWS. In the case of the 3-D Catalog, the lantern-slides were all made directly from one half of the stereoview negatives. The Cover and two sample pages of the Stereoview Catalog are shown just below in the Enami Activity List numbers (6) and (9). ENAMI'S ACTIVITIES and CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE WORLD OF JAPANESE PHOTOGRAPHYA A  For the moment, based on a wide range of primary sources, it is now clear that T.
