ABOUT OUR WORK

The Jungle Library Project is an environmental education programme for children living in regions undergoing intense deforestation and human-wildlife conflict.

We were set up by wildlife enthusiast and amateur photographer Pungky Nanda Pratama.

In 2017, Pungky had a dream to teach environmental education to villages surrounding mega-biodiversity hotspots in Indonesia — a big dream, but only a small camera to achieve it.

ONE YEAR ON...

Check out our 2018 Annual Report on the programme's development, one year on. 

Highlights:

  • We gave each pupil the same test at the beginning and end of the programme, and their scores increased on average from 34% to 71%.
  • Read the success stories Widi and the Softshell Turtle and Rio the Malayan Racer.
  • See our goals for 2019.

Check out Pungky's side-project, the Flora Conservation Act, to preserve rare orchids.

Check out Pungky's side-project, the Mobile Library Programme, to boost literacy and environmental awareness.

Of course, we'd be nothing without our eager troops of students.

PLANTS & ANIMALS

We'd be even less without them. Though they don't always appreciate the care.
