Bintan-01 Marine Protected Area as large as 185.078,46 Ha has been established through the Governor’s backup decree No 1050 on 2019. Yayasan Ecology Kepulauan Riau (YEKR) along with Department of Marine and Fisheries (DKP Kepri), BPSPL Padang, UMRAH, Department of Fisheries Bintan, as well as supported from Conservation International (CI) and Nikoi and Cempedak Private island have collaborated to build Marine conservation management effectively. To achieve the outcome, a three years work plan (2020-2022) have been designed as a shared guidelines to each parties. Creating the work plan has referred to EKKP3K (the Effectiveness of Marine Protected Area Management, Coastal, and Small islands) as references to manage Marine Protected Area.


Besides the marine protected area, YEKR has done various efforts to preserve the environment. One of those efforts was a rehabilitation of critical land in Buton island, and turtle conservation in Mapur village. YEKR has worked with several parties such as government, private sector, and local communities. The involvement of those stakeholders are substantial to be done to create a good and sustainable management of environment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monitoring of Tree Planting in Buton Island

Even though 2020 will end soon, we are still trying to run of  our program, one of them is monitoring of the tree planting in post-mining land in Buton Island, Air Glubi Village, Bintan Pesisir District, Bintan Regency. This is the 4th monitoring since the beginning of planting in March 2020. Preparation for the monitoring began with coordination with the Riau Islands Province Agriculture and Forestry Department. They provided 100 African Mahogany seedlings as their support.

On December 30th 2020, with the participation of Air Glubi Village Government and Cempedak Private Island, we came down to the planting site. We found several dead of African Mahogany trees, then replaced them with the new seedlings. We're very happy because the trees were well planted and fertile. We also thank to those whom involved in this activity, and hope to continue this planting activity in the following years.

After running these programs in 2020, we're conducting an evaluation program to measure or assess whether a program was implemented as following the plan or goals to be achieved. We have two programs that are focused on this year, namely the post-mining critical land rehabilitation program and the Marine Protected Area program. The emergence of the Covid-19 Pandemic has also impacted our programs, starting from the early stages of tree planting in the post-mining critical land rehabilitation program as well as several surveys in the marine protected area program, and generally, we can carried it out well. We're happy because everyone involved was very helpful in our programs. Through the evaluation of this program, we can find out which things might be obstacles in running our program, but we will immediately fix them so that our future programs can run even better.
