Defending Paradise: Burung-burung Surga di Tanah Papua dan Kepulauan Maluku

0 views 17 hours ago

EcoNusa dan Cornell Lab of Ornithology @Cornell Lab of Ornithology mempersembahkan Defending Paradise: Burung-burung Surga di Tanah Papua dan Kepulauan Maluku.

Burung cenderawasih dikenal istimewa karena keindahan warna bulunya serta memiliki perilaku memikat lawan jenis dengan tarian yang spektakuler. Lebih dari itu, keberadaan cenderawasih berperan besar bagi keberlangsungan ekosistem hutan. Sementara itu, hutan-hutan hujan tropis di Tanah Papua dan Kepulauan Maluku merupakan salah satu tutupan hutan terbesar di dunia yang berkontribusi menjaga keseimbangan iklim bumi.

Cenderawasih adalah burung hutan. Seluruh aspek kehidupannya sangat bergantung pada hutan yang sehat. Sayangnya, kini hutan-hutan rumah mereka semakin terancam dan menghilang. Alih fungsi lahan hutan menjadi area industri dan pembangunan infrastruktur adalah ancaman terbesarnya. 28 dari sekitar 40 spesies cenderawasih hidup di Tanah Papua dan Kepulauan Maluku. Empat di antaranya kini tengah terancam punah.

Melestarikan hutan-hutan tropis di Tanah Papua dan Kepulauan Maluku berarti melindungi cenderawasih sebagai hewan yang dilindungi. Menyelamatkan hutan berarti pula menyelamatkan pula kehidupan.

EcoNusa Foundation and Cornell Lab of Ornithology presents Defending Paradise: Birds of Paradise in Tanah Papua and Maluku Islands as part of the #DefendingParadise campaign for tropical forests preservation in Tanah Papua and Maluku Islands. These two places are the habitat for hundreds of thousands of plant and animal species, including birds-of-paradise.

Birds-of-paradise are well-known because of their colorful plumage and the unique behavior to attract through spectacular dances. Furthermore, the existence of birds-of-paradise plays a major role in the sustainability of forest ecosystems. Tropical rainforests in Tanah Papua and Maluku Islands are one of the largest forest covers in the world that contribute to maintaining the balance of the earth's climate.

Birds-of-paradise are forest birds. All aspects of their lives depend on healthy forests. Unfortunately, their homes are increasingly threatened and disappear. Forests conversion into industrial areas and infrastructure development are the biggest threats. 28 of approximately 40 species of birds-of-paradise live in Tanah Papua and Maluku Islands. Four of them are currently in danger of extinction.

Preserving tropical forests in Tanah Papua and Maluku Islands is also protecting birds-of-paradise as protected animals. Saving forests also means saving lives.

The forests in the Land of Papua and the Maluku Islands as a habitat for Cenderawasih need our mutual support. Write your message of support for the #DefendingParadise campaign with EcoNusa and Cornell Lab of Ornithology via econusa.id/id/defendingparadise.
