A crowdfunding Movement
Sintas Indonesia Foundation has been registered to a crowdfunding platform called “Global Giving”. It’s a great opportunity for us to raise funds and to grow our conservation program to become self-sustained. We will mobilize government officers, civil societies, and local tribes to secure the Sumatran tigers from snares through extensive footwork snare sweeping. The fundraising is going to start on 3 December 2019.
What is GlobalGiving?
GlobalGiving is the largest global crowdfunding community connecting nonprofits, donors, and companies in nearly every country. GlobalGiving help nonprofits from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe (and hundreds of places in between, including Indonesia) access the tools, training, and support they need to be more effective and make our world a better place.
What does SINTAS initiate?
This initiative mobilizes civil societies and local tribes to secure at least 20 Sumatran tigers from snares, the most direct and lethal human activity, through intensive snare sweeping in a human-dominated habitat in West Sumatra, Indonesia.
Wildlife snaring is the most direct, lethal, human activities against the Sumatran tigers in Sumatra. Surviving injured tigers often enter human settlements and croplands causing severe and long-lasting conflict. Forest patches in West Sumatra buffer one of only two core, viable, tiger habitat of the Kerinci Seblat landscape. Effective, direct, conservation efforts such as snare sweeping is, therefore, an urgent need to stop the bleeding.
This initiative will be a massive civil society movement against wildlife snaring. We will involve media community to publish the movement. It will, therefore, bring a ‘ripple effect’ to a wider audience, both local and national, about the severe impact of wildlife snares, not only for the tigers but also other key wildlife species
