Do you know?

Indonesia is inhabited by so many species of flora and fauna that it is well-known for its mega bio-diversity. Indonesia is the third country after Brazil and Zaire who have the most bio-diversity in the world. Indonesia has 515 species of mammals (second on the world mammal list behind Brazil), 1,539 species of birds (fifth largest). Indonesia also ranks behind only Brazil and possibly Columbia in freshwater fish diversity, with about 1,400 species. Some species were only discovered in the 20th century.

Unfortunately, only few people know about thise wonderful facts of Indonesia. Even Indonesian youths do not know these. They lack of Indonesian nature and wildlife knowledge. That is why a wildlife education centre like P-WEC is needed.
