Three years have passed since the declaration of West Papua as the province of conservation. Since then, it has started campaign activities in six regencies and cities.
The conservation campaign is supported by Conservation International (CI) Indonesia through a folk party named the People’s Party for Conservation, which comprises fun activities connected by the educational theme of conservation.
According to a statement received by KompasTravel on Monday, the folk party was first held as part of the West Papua Art and Culture Festival VI, which took place at the same time as the International Conference on Biodiversity, Ecotourism and Creative Economy (ICBE).
The folk party and conservation campaign, which took place in Manokwari on Monday in front of the West Papua Governor’s Office, included two main activities: a film screening and workshop.
