Human activities leave Indonesia’s islands in jeopardy. Unregulated mining and other unsustainable activities, combined with rising sea levels due to global warming are changing the landscape of the many-island nation, said Freddy Numberi, Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries. Minister Numberi stated that 24 islands have already disappeared beneath the ocean and another 2,000 are facing the same fate unless actions are taken to ensure their protection.
Minister Numberi, we join in your concern for your nation and fellow citizens. Let us join in good stewardship to sustain our surroundings for years to come.
