Donation Information:

1️⃣ Why the local community?

Donations are used to purchase and install trail cameras to study the wildlife in the national park. We worked with the local community in August 2022. During a 3-day trek, we explored the depths of Meru Betiri's mountainous forests. The community lives in Meru Betiri's reserve. They care about their ecosystem and resist any form of destruction. Meru Betiri is where the Javan Tiger was last seen.


2️⃣ Destructive mining

The vast reserve is more than 85 football pitches wide (580 km2). It is under constant pressure from capitalist needs, such as poachers and industrial companies. Last year, the local community was forced to demonstrate against the arrival of a global mining company. This company (still) wants to get permission to mine inside the reserve by changing its legal status from a protected area to a military one. They have already achieved something similar in a nearby area that is being rapidly industrialised. A mine would drastically destroy Meru Betiri.

3️⃣ How can you help?

Large areas of Meru Betiri remain unknown and far from human interventions — as they should be. Unknown and vanishing species still roam free here. During our visit, we heard countless stories about tiger and panther sightings. Meru Betiri is home to around 30 species of mammals, 180 species of birds and a wide variety of plants. Documentation and education are crucial to maintaining the reserve's protected status. 


Support the local community of Meru Betiri by purchasing our products or donating directly via the donation button on our website. The button will take you to a dedicated donation page set up with Paypal to accept donations for the local community only.


4️⃣ How will we help?

Donations will mainly be used to buy trail cameras, but also to reward the local community for their efforts in setting up the cameras, analysing the footage, etc. Our plan is to return to Meru Betiri in late 2023 to begin the documentation process. Once the documented material has been analysed, it will be shared on our blog, Instagram and via our mailing list as a form of validation and awareness.
