Jeepney Projects’ own David Tomb will soon be heading out to the wilds of Indonesia with birder pal Brian Coleman of Britain and Untu Baware of the Papua Bird Club to see what he can find! Waigeo, Halmahera and Sulawesi are just a few of the exotic locales he’ll be investigating. Birds of Paradise, Pittas, 17 (yes, 17) species of kingfishers and Tarsiers are just some of the amazing critters he hopes to find. David will also check in on local community and conservation efforts on Halmahera. Weda Reef and Rainforest Resort have implemented a mangrove restoration and turtle release program as part of their Sawi Ecotourism Foundation. Keep an eye out for reports from the field. Godspeed, old boy!
