A selection of the highlights of what we saw, experienced, discovered and tested on a recent expedition to Lakes Poso, Matano and Towuti.
Kurniawan P. Bandjolu from Institut Mosintuwu, our strong partner in Lake Poso area, shares with us his experiences of recent exploration and collection of lake biota with local children.
Pilsen Zoo has opened a new exhibit promoting endangered freshwater fish and conservation breeding initiatives. Sulawesi Keepers are also featured!
Another unmistakable plant from the Sulawesi lakes is also known by its name Nymphoides sp. "Lymnocharus". It has odd shaped leaves and floating flowers.
Our project received significant financial support: €15,000 from MEGAZOO & Friends with the help of AKWB. It is a commitment that we do not relent in our efforts and work hard for a better future for the Sulawesi lakes.
A lot of hand work and time dedicated to keeping Sulawesi aquariums clean. This is the strategy of Alex Winterhalder and his family, who share their experience with us.
Institut Mosintuwu, our partner from Lake Poso, has been active in promoting local biodiversity. On the occasion of the village festival in Peura, about 100 people showed great interest.
Sulawesi Keepers have a new member – and the first ever to come directly from Sulawesi! Iqram makes expeditions to Lake Matano, where he gathers important information.
How was 2022? How did our team and portfolio of our activities grow, what topics did we focus on the most, what relationships did we establish? How much money did our donors give us and what did we spend it on? And what are we planning next?
Chara sp. with its red “flowers” is a very unique and attractive plant. But it is even more demanding than Sulawesi shrimps!
