Enggang Merista Featured on Kaltim Pos Newspaper

Today, I have been featured on Kaltim Pos, a well known newspaper in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. My “Enggang Merista” painting is the result of my case study about the critically endangered hornbills, the massive hunting, and the conservation of hornbill. Hunting have triggered a precipitous drop in key wildlife populations of hornbill and appear to be having ecological impacts by affecting the reproductive capacities of trees dependent on animal dispersal of their seeds (deforestation). That’s a concept behind the idea of Enggang Merista painting and why I go on with it, to support massive hunting awareness.
