On Location - Pusat Primata Schmutzer, Java, Indonesia

Today we started shooting the first Indonesian footage for the film: a good start to the new month. We are now staying at the Pusat Primata Schmutzer (Schmutzer Primate Centre) where we are building up footage of the education programmes that teach Indonesian children about the concepts of conservation and the variety of primate species in Indonesia, and the threat that many of these species are facing with logging and plantation concessions and illegal activities. Through this we are hoping to illustrate the efforts being made locally to protect the future of the forests and their inhabitants.

Congratulations on your excellent project. Your blog came after mine when I press the "next blog" button in the top right-hand corner- I am honored to be in such company.

Now can you tell us how to send the check to donate to your cause? I didn't see any specifics in the links you have up.
