My name is Jenie subaru, i was born on 5 June 1982. I have 9 siblings wich 4 of us are local guides in the Tanjung Puting National Park and our oldest brother was the first guide here. The first time i work in tourism when i was in Junior high School especially during the long vacation to help the family to pay for school fee, I worked as a klotok(wooden boat) crew and after graduated from high school on 2001 I returned to work in tourism as a cook and a captain klotok tour. after a couple month i began to learn English and start trying to be a guide in 2002 and get my certificates a few years after that. I work in the Tanjung Puting National Park not only for business but also because this is my life, My parents were live in Tanjung Puting National Park and i also spent my childhood there before it became a National Park.
I used to work as a freelance guide who works at a travel agent here even though they are not local agents, today I decided to work alone because I was not too happy with the increasing number of foreign agent which is not employ local peoples .I want to establish my own travel agent so i can invite local people to work with me as a guide or klotok crew.
We lost large area of our forest because the expansion of Palm Oil plantation company, and now we can found the palm oil plantation near the national park. And about 4 months ago I started to collect donations from all peoples and tourists that I used to buy land to save the forests and habitats around the Tanjung Puting National Park, now I've managed to buy 2 hectare of land for animal habitat , and hope i can expand more land soon. i will use some of the tour profit for the conservation, and if you want to donate you can contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org . we will be grateful for all of your donations and help.
