Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve promotes the conservation of the environment by promoting projects that involve the community. They are admirable in that they work immersed in the community to ensure that their environmental suit the welfare of the communities.
Protection of the area
Protecting the area means living harmoniously with our environment. It means that we as humans must prevent causing damage to the land we live in and instead contribute to its rehabilitation. When the environment is protected, other species are also able to live safely in their natural habitats. It prevents some species to be endangered. Protection of an area enables humans, animals and plants to live free from hazards and pollutants. Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve through Infinite Earth aims to make sure that the environment continues to be a safe place to live in for all species for generations to come.
Rimba Raya aims to provide communities with a sustainable source of income that is also environmentally sound. Poverty is a major factor that drives community to prioritize short term solutions to their economic struggles while sacrificing the environment. In order for a program to be successful in a long term aspect, it needs to address the challenges that communities are facing. Rimba Raya aims to provide long term employment solutions that will not only alleviate the community’s financial struggles it will also eradicate the environmental strains that irresponsible harnessing natural resources can cause.
Eco Friendly Lifestyle
Industrial agribusiness is a threat to our forests. However, they do not hold the sole responsibility for it. Fuel wood that is harvested and used in household kitchens is making a negative impact on the environment too. Illegal logging for fuel wood is one of the major contributors of deforestation. Rimba Raya aims to solve this problem by providing a fuel-efficient cook stove to the community. These stoves consumes less fuel and gives of less smoke. As much as there are environmental benefits, there are health advantages too. Smoke from fuel wood may cause cancer and chronic lung disease.
Provide clean water
Waterborne diseases claim many lives throughout the world. The community that surrounds Rimba Raya project lives by the river. They use water from the river for many purposes and one of them is for drinking. This water source is not safe and has caused illnesses especially in children. Rimba Raya aims to provide ceramic filters to all households in the area so that they can have access to safe drinking water.
Become good stewards
We all share stewardship of the world we live in no matter what part of the globe we live in. Rimba Raya aims help communities develop a lifestyle that promotes the conservation of the environment by its many projects. However, this is not the only area in that needs such guidance. They also aim to inspire the world to do the same so that we can all be good stewards to the environment that nurtures us.
