Manokwari, Jubi – Conservationist who work in the coastal area of West Papua Province unceasingly promote the protection of sea turtles. This month, as many as 32 pupils of four elementary schools in North Manokwari participated in the workshop on sea turtles at Mubraidiba Village, Northern Manowari sub-district.

The Head of Coastal and Marine Conservation (DKP) Office of West Papua Province Bastian Wanma said the workshop on sea turtles is part of the Sea Turtle Camp activity for the elementary school children in North Manokwari Sub-district. It is part of the program of DKP West Papua in collaboration with sea turtle conservationist and activists considering that the North coast of Manokwari is a nesting site of several species of sea turtles.

“Camp of friends of sea turtles for elementary school children in Mubraidiba village was carried out for two days, from 16 to 17 August. The activity was conducted in this village because it is a nesting area of several species of sea turtles,” Bastian told Jubi on Friday (8/24/2018).

During their camping, said Bastian, 32 pupils receive materials about the life cycle of sea turtles and the threats to the lives of sea turtles, both from the natural perils such as predatory animals or other threats from humans and the dangers of plastic waste to the life cycle of sea turtles.

Meanwhile, Obaja Tarami, the conservation activist in Mubraidiba village, said he along with his group ‘Mandani Putra’ has been working to protect sea turtles and manage to save thousands of sea turtle babies along the nesting beach area.

“Since it established in 2014 under the supervision of DKP West Papua, Madani Putra has saved thousands of sea turtles to their marine habitat. However, our commitment should also be transferred to young generation so that the message of protecting sea turtles still exist and the conservation work becomes everyone’s duty,” he said. (*)

Jayapura, Jubi – Papuan legislator Laurenzus Kadepa considers the arrest of a man AY, who posted a ‘Free Papua’ video on his Facebook account, and his child SY by Mimika Police are overwhelmed.

“It’s exaggerated. If this continuously occurs, it means the state is really silencing the democracy in Papua,” Kadepa told Jubi by phone on Saturday (08/25/2018).

According to him, this arrest is not a proper solution. Indonesia must change its approach to the Papuans.

Meanwhile, a human right activist Theo Hesegam said he is very concerned about the violence that unceasingly occurs in Papua, as it has taken hundreds of people’s lives.

“Up to now, the number of victims is still growing whether the Indonesian military of Papuan liberation army cause it. In the conflict involved both sides, civilians always become a victim. “The victims are not only indigenous Papuans but also non-Papuans,” he said.

Referring to this situation, he suggests the Indonesian Government should have a solution to end the violence in Papua. (*)
