EcoDefender Initiation of “Sasi” in Lemon Island

Youth community EcoDefender, facilitated by Geraja Kristen Indonesia Bahtera Utrecht initiated “Sasi”, a tradition law that prohibits local people to collect and consume natural resources in their area, within a mutually agreed timeframe. This “sasi” was implemented at Nusmapi Island that also known as Lemon Island in Manokwari, West Papua. This prohibition was started from March 31st, 2023 for 1 year period. Karel Yambise from EcoDefender explained that the initiation of “Sasi”, came from a reasearch they did regarding sea area conditions in Lemon island for 3 months back in 2022. The research found that 75% of coastal and marine area in Lemon Island can still be improved and preserved. EcoNusa fully support this “sasi” initation from EcoDefender.
