The weekend after the Celebration, 18 kids from the Children of Permuteram Association were invited for a camping program that started at SERC (Science, Education and Research Centre of Menjangan Resort) and ended at the Menjangan Island with a mangrove clean-up.

The kids labelled the water bottles with their names to “re-use” plastic in an intelligent way!!

Circling together with Nono and Satyavan, the educators leading the program, we took an oath to protect each other and our mother nature.

Natural Guides… in this activity one plays the role of a photographer, while the other turns into a camera. A lot of fun to understand nature!

The word “menjangan” stands for deer, the sacred animals that live in the area and have also being on the spot of the conservation programs carried by the Menjangan Resort.

Next morning the kids took a trail through the Monsoon Forest, the Savannas, the Mangroves and a boat to Menjangan Island. There we found a sea of rubbish stuck in the mangroves…

After cleaning the area by the temple, we all got together to sing and dance our commitment to protect our Mother Nature!

We all head back home…
