ABC Wednesday: Letter E for ecotourism and environment

http://newstara.com/…/berita-1763-kaltara-menjadi-wisata-ho…
My younger brother Dr Henry Chan Chok Khuang. He is the leader for the Heart of Borneo (HoB) for WWF in Malaysia and Indonesia
Hi Ann, here's your bro at a recent ecotourism workshop in Indonesia. He is seated with the VIP, the governor. Unfortunately, its in bahasa Indonesia
Kaltara Menjadi Wisata HoB Bersama Serawak dan Sabah



 The guide tells us what not to do.

 A yellow sign to advice  people what no to do. My brother Dr Henry Chan,  takes his son Jonathan, to appreciate nature at a young age. 6 years ago, Jonathan took me to the same place.

My husband the water engineer is attending the Australian and Ports conference. One of the talks was by my friend Ngarimu, on the environment from the Maori protocol prospective.


 I am very proud of Henry as he works for humanity and we share a lot of ideals.He is always traveling and attending conference on the environment. We tease him to be the protector of the orang-utan in the jungle.

He is leader for the Heart of Borneo (HoB). The Heart of Borneo Leader for WWF in Malaysia and Indonesia since March. He is based in Kuching but he travels a lot.

Recently, I made a friend, and she said," I like Henry, he loves trees and I like trees." I didn't tell her, I like  trees too.

That is a magnificent choise for E... Educators in this particular area are by far not enough present and still to many people are not aware of the importance....

Have a nice ABC-W-day / - week

Thank you Ann for sharing the story of your dear brother's
work you must be very proud of him,
I believe that the Orang-outang is the most intelligent of
all the ape family, they are so cute and quite affectionate too !


I congratulate your brother for all the hard work he does in Eco-tourism.

Most interesting writing Ann, thank you for sharing this part of your brother
and the vital work he carries out.
Best Wishes.

You obviously are very proud of your brother and your husband. They both are in a very valuable area of work. Fascinating story about them.

As a librarian, I've gotten more than a few questions on how to start an ecotourism business.
