Hello Planet Indonesia International (PII) Community!
So yesterday we failed to find a hive in the forest, but we're going to stay put in the village of Umbo because we'll be building the artificial hives the natural ones will be implanted into. The training is in-depth and involves everyone in the community get hands-on because our programs and initiatives prepare villages to be self-sustaining by empowering them with knowledge they can build on independently.
As for the hive we didn't find yesterday, Dekky (YPI Sustainable Agriculture coordinator) and Pak Doi Doi (Local Community Conservation Member) will lead some more teams on a search today. Remember, Umbo is now inside a Protected Area so the hive must be in a tree either already dead or outside the nature reserve.
Enjoy day 2!
Dekky, Agung, Pak Abdurahman, Steph and the Planet Indonesia Team
