Sumatra's forests are very rich in biodiversity. And it is the last place on the planet earth where tigers, elephants, orangutans and rhinos can be found together... How many of us know about this treasure of the world? Actually the forest of Sumatra has been vanishing. In the last quarter-century, 30 percent of the island's forests have completely disappeared...
Wonder Eyes Project, WWF Japan, and WWF Indonesia carried out the photo training program for the children as the collaboration project in Sumatra island, Indonesia, in Oct-Nov 2009 : Bukit Barisan Selatan and Tesso Nilo National Park where natural treasures still remain while forest and wild animals are in danger.
A total of 174 children of age 7-16 years old participated and they found themselves feeling the joy of taking photos and creativity of photography while communing with nature.
