ESI is launching a program to assess the natural state of Balabac Island about 100 km north of Borneo. Balabac is home of many rare endemic species including the Philippine mouse deer or Pilandok (Tragulus napu nigricans), the world's smallest ungulate. ESI President Pierre Fidenci has met with local decision makers and stakeholders to discuss conservation actions and encourage sustainable living. Further, ESI staff started to conduct biological assessment in remote areas of the island. Saving the irreplaceable is our mission!


February 2007
ESI President, Pierre Fidenci, along with three indigenous people is currently exploring deep mountainous forests of the forgotten southern Palawan Island, Philippines. The goal of this mission is to search for the rare Philippine forest turtle, evaluate ecosystem conditions, and establish indigenous support activities where fragile unique ecosystem and culture still remain. He is crossing through unexplored and virgin forests valleys, foothills, and high mountains (up to 1,500 m) starting from the Sulu Sea coast all the way to the China Sea coast. At present he is staying with one of Tao't Bato indigenous people village at an altitude of about 700 meters. This expedition is very physically challenging and risky (various types of malaria, difficult terrains with no roads and trails); we wish him good luck!


February 2007
ESI is launching "the Tao't Bato indigenous people home land and culture support initiative". Through several expeditions in the deep mountains of southern Palawan, Philippines, ESI staff has assessed some terrible damages on the native home lands of the indigenous people. ESI is committed to acting now and restoring their cultural and natural heritages and stop further pillages of their resources. As part of the initiative, we will be removing graffiti from vandalism at their living caves and will be working closely with all concerned authorities and organizations to better control and restrict the access to their mountainous home land. Support us now and make a difference!


January 2007
ESI with the collaboration of the Bp Conservation Programme, the Wildlife Conservation Society, and Palawan State University organized a GIS (Geographic Information Systems) training for the young conservationists of the Philippines. The training occured in Puerto Princesa, the capital of the island of Palawan. The course provided young local conservation biologists with an opportunity to learn how GIS can be used to assess the conservation status of endangered species. They learned how to conduct a regional conservation assessment using GIS to determine critical conservation areas for an endangered species and to use landscape analysis to determine optimal landscape configurations for conserving endangered species. Learn more here!


December 2006
ESI is happy to announce the creation of Field Podcasts. Experience and learn online about endangered wildlife throughout our podcasts recorded directly from the field around the world. Podcasts will include unique nature sounds (e.g., frog calls), interviews with wildlife biologists and indigenous people, or one day live recording from our conservation efforts on the ground. Some of the podcasts will also include free online materials that will help you to improve your knowledge on wildlife conservation. It will be another way for you to check how your donation works towards saving nature. The first field podcasts will be available online beginning of 2007.


July 2006
ESI understands the vital need to enhance environmental communication and education in the developing world.
