The Pongo Environmental Awards, presented by the Orang Utan Republik Foundation (OURF), have a dual (or twofold) purpose: to raise funds for OURF's crucial work to save wild, critically endangered orangutans from extinction and to honor those who have made significant contributions to understanding and appreciating orangutans, endangered species, rainforest habitat, and improving conditions for orangutans and other animals.
This year's recipients of the 9th Annual Pongo Environmental Awards include:
● James Balog (Earth Vision Institute): Balog is a scientist, photographer, filmmaker, and author with decades of work capturing stunning images of the changes to our fragile planet.
● Heal the Bay: being honored for their impressive four decades of environmental advocacy, science, education, and protecting the coastal waters in the Greater Los Angeles area.
● Forum Konservasi Leuser: honoring the organization and their local leadership for years of effective environmental activism, and conservation of the Leuser Ecosystem in Aceh, Sumatra.
The theme of this year's fundraiser, which is open to the public, is "Biodiversity Matters - Our LIVES Depend on It." This theme emphasizes the urgent need to take action to prevent ecosystem collapse. We can no longer wait. Indonesia, which makes up only 1.3% of the world's land surface, is a hotspot of biodiversity, hosting 17% of the world's bird species, 16% of the world's reptiles, 12% of the world's mammals, and 10% of the world's flowering species. According to World Wildlife Fund, the world has seen an average 68% drop in mammal, bird, fish, reptile, and amphibian populations since 1970. Much of the loss is caused by habitat destruction due to unsustainable agriculture or logging.
