Dr Peter Pratja works for the Frankfurt Zoological Society

Jambi, Sumatra. Today we went to see Dr. Peter Pratje in his Jambi office to conduct the interview. We really admire the motivation and endurance he shows in his constant fight for the last standing native forests here on Sumatra. But without donations he can't achieve anything.

Tomorrow we will visit the Orangutan reintroduction station. To go there, at the border of the Bukhit Tigapuluh national park, we will have to drive the whole day. We can't wait to see the forest and the animals...

Hongkong, China. After long and exhausting 10 hours of flight we arrived at our first destination. The people seem very friendly, and one guy in a restaurant greets us with: “Happy you're here…” This gigantic city with nearly 7 million inhabitants is surprisingly calm and easy going. Unfortunately, in any seafood-shop we see shark fins on display. We hope that this tradition will belong to the past one day.

Munich, Germany. Finally, after a whole year of preparation we completed our website, tested it and and are satisfied with the result. Today is the official launch! Last night Agata finished our second film about Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia and environmental activist. After lots of research, creative mastery and the very generous support of Getty Images we are now very happy with the film. Have a look...

We can't wait

Munich, Germany. We have to wait 10 more days until we leave freezing Germany, heading for Hong Kong and then Jakarta. Sumatra will be our first stop where we will meet Dr. Peter Pratje of the Frankfurt Zoological Society. We're slowly realizing that we'll be travelling for many months and we're looking forward to meeting extraordinary people and longing to get in touch with Mother Earth again.

I experienced sometimes that the most sweet and tender, the most innocent and encouraging society may be found in any natural object.
