Photos by @TimLaman. Many of you have asked how I got the bird of paradise images up in the canopy..... so here you are. To capture the images of Red Birds-of-Paradise displaying (and the occasional hornbill) in my recent posts, I scaled a tree using ropes and ascenders, and built a very small blind in the canopy where I could anchor in my RED camera and tripod and sit (while still tied in of course). In this first shot, I’m just starting to construct my small platform. Swipe to see my setup in the blind, and also another shot rappelling out of the tree at sunset. @BirdsofParadiseProject #CornellLabofOrnithology #birdofparadise #Indonesia #RajaAmpat #TanahPapua #Papua #PapuaIndonesia #WestPapua #ConservationProvince #IndonesiaBiodiversity #ShotonRED @reddigitalcinema #onassignment

Photo by @TimLaman. Male Red Bird-of-Paradise high in the canopy of Waigeo Island, poses on his display perch with the islands and ocean in the background. Indonesia’s provinces of Papua and West Papua on island of New Guinea make up the Land of Papua or "Tanah Papua" in the Indonesian language. This region supports one of the only remaining large tropical forests in the world and is home to nearly half of Indonesia’s biodiversity. Over 600 species of birds are found in Papua, including 27 bird-of-paradise species, many of which live nowhere else on earth. At a major international Conference in Manokwari on Oct 10, the provinces made a major commitment to a green future. West Papua has declared itself a “Conservation Province” and both provinces have tremendous environmental leadership, and committed to preserving 70% of their land as forest. Amazing and it was very inspiring to be present here the passion of the governors to protect their lands.

This is one of the Raja Ampat Islands, home of the Red and Wilson’s Birds-of-Paradise, and part of the “Conservation Province” declared by the Province of West Papua, Indonesia. This province, along with its neighbor to the east, Papua Province, made a large commitment to a green future on Oct. 10 at a major international conference in Manokwari by committing to preserve 70% of their land as forest. This is hugely significant for our planet, and hats off to the bold leaders who have the courage to take this action. #ConservationProvince, #ProvinsiKonservasi #RajaAmpat, #Waigeo, #Papua, #Indonesia, #TanahPapua, #PapuaBiodiversity, @BirdsofParadiseProject.

Support the creation of the world's first Conservation Province in #WestPapua, #Indonesia by signing the @sealegacy letter of support (link in bio) 🌊🐠🌱🇲🇨 #protectwestpapua #conservationprovince #biodiversity #environmentprotection #sustainabledevelopment #Repost from @sealegacy with @regram.app Photo by @shawnheinrichs // WE NEED YOUR HELP! In 2015, the provincial governor of West Papua made a groundbreaking declaration, laying the foundation to create the World’s first Conservation Province, or #ProvinsiKonservasi, established to ensure the long-term environmental health of the entire region. Our team has been working with @conservationid for the last three years to drive the adoption of this historic law. Last month we presented our new film to audiences across the province on a grand-scale Outdoor Cinema. This media tour directly engaged and inspired more than 25,000 people, resulted in a petition signed by more than 700 local leaders in support of the Provinsi Konservasi legislation (the Perdasus), and was fundamental to securing a commitment from key members of the West Papuan Parliament to pass the Perdasus in the November 2018 parliamentary session. These parliamentary leaders have directly asked for OUR HELP to pass the law. Specifically, they have asked us to gather as many signatures as possible to show the other members of parliament that the world is watching. We MUST deliver! This is our best chance to secure protections for this global jewel, and pave the way to a sustainable future for its people. We only have until December 1st. Your voice has never been so important. Please sign the letter of support by clicking the link in my bio. Your name will be delivered directly to the Parliament of West Papua, and your voice WILL be heard. 💪🏽💙🇮🇩 #protectwestpapua #turningthetide with @shawnheinrichs @bluespherefoundation @sealegacy @indonesianoceanpride

Photo by @TimLaman. My canopy blind was pretty close to this Red Bird-of-Paradise display action, and adding a 2x converter to my 400mm, and with a bit of cropping on the 6K file from my RED Helium camera, you get to see all the detail in the feathers of this male’s face as he performs his up-close to the female final phase of courtship. Please support conservation in West Papua by going to the link in my profile and signing the petition to support the Conservation Province law. It’s historic and will make a huge difference not only for Bird-of-Paradise conservation, but climate change by keeping a LOT of forest intact. Check it out and read the details.

I was almost got swallowed by the whale shark it seemed 😂 but swimming with them was one of the most amazing feelings! 😍 Don’t get me wrong, this charismatic animal is very friendly to human. I was just being silly didn’t really know what to do when Susi, the first whale shark, suddenly appeared so close to me like that 😅 Susi has a tag on its fin to track her movement and migration pattern. This was part of conservation effort conducted by Conservation International Indonesia. Whale shark or hiu paus is an endangered species due to unsustainable fisheries, by catch, and late maturation. Fortunately, it is fully protected in Indonesia by the Decree of the Minister of Marine Affairs and Fisheries 18/2013. However, the marine plastic waste are a huge threat. They still can swallow micro plastics we throw to the oceans. Things we can do now? Reduce the use of plastic in our daily life. Starting from today! Let’s do it for ourselves and for Susi and the friends.. they are soooooooo cute!! 😍😍😍 Thanks @trevchee for the vid and for laughing at me 😅 at least I went down you know! Lol also Mas Ping Machmud from CI Indonesia for making this happened. And for Mas @aheruwardhana who said I looked like kecebong running away from the paus 😅 #SaveWhaleShark #ReducePlasticUse #whaleshark #swimmingwithwhalesharks #kaimana #westpapua #conservationprovince #provinsikonservasi #papuabarat #oceans #plastic #plasticfree #recycle #sustainability #sustainablefisheries #hiupaus #conservation

The archipelago of Raja Ampat is home to almost 50,000 families and to one of the richest biodiversity of the world, marine and inland. . As in many other places, the growth of plastic pollution linked to tourism related practices might be a threat for the all sorts of life here. #wheredidmyplasticgo . . . . . . . #environment #westpapua #protectwestpapua #rajaampat #plasticfree #stopmetplastic #conscious #conservationprovince #documentaryphotography #photojournalism #indonesia #cleantheoceans

On the road to the creation of the world's first Conservation Province in West Papua, in Indonesia... 🌏🌊🦈🌺 #Repost @bluespherefoundation • • • Hi friends! Your support has been invaluable in the drive to secure a sustainable future for West Papua, Indonesia, one of the World’s last great gems. The Perdasus – the proposed law that will ensure sustainable industries, establish crucial protected areas, and guarantee that Papua’s indigenous peoples have access to their own resources – has been approved by the West Papuan Parliament and the Governor. The Blue Sphere Foundation/Sea Legacy petition was presented to parliament during discussions, and it did exactly what we hoped it would do – demonstrate to the parliament that the world is watching. The Perdasus has now been passed on to the Majelis Rakyat Papua (MRP) – the top level of Papuan traditional, or Adat, government. It is currently under review by this council, and our partners within Conservation International believe that it will be adopted by the end of the year. This is the last step in passing the law! We will keep you updated as we know more. Thank you again to all of you for your support! Your voices have made a difference. #protectwestpapua #provinsikonservasi @shawnheinrichs @sealegacy @conservationid @indonesianoceanpride #bluespherefoundation #westpapua #protectwestpapua #forest #forestphotography #rainforest #rainforestprotection #ocean #ocanprotection #conservationprovince #firstconservationprovince #biodiversity #biodiversityprotection #nature #naturephotography #environmentprotection #sustainabledevelopment

There I was, up in the top of a tree trying to photograph the courtship display of a Red Bird-of-Paradise, when this Blythe’s Hornbill decided to land right in the middle of the bird-of-paradise action. At first the courting birds were a bit shy, and moved down below, but after the hornbill sat there for a few minutes, they realized he wasn’t a threat and moved back up to their favorite branches for display. In all my years photographing birds-of-paradise, this is one of the funniest things I’ve seen. What do you think this hornbill was thinking?

The world's second largest rainforest, the world's largest mangrove forest, and some of the most bountiful reefs on Earth, all in one single stunningly beautiful region. We are on the brink of securing the most significant protection of its kind ever fashioned - Provinsi Konservasi. ✊🏽🌏🇮🇩 Local communities have been practicing traditional conservation for more than 1000 years, but the force of unsustainable development is putting many of their resources and wildlife under threat. As a result, more than 700 local leaders, citizens, and parliamentary leaders have joined forces to ensure that a law (the Perdasus) that would establish sweeping protections for West Papua gets passed. They have worked incredibly hard and are on their way to making the world's first Conservation Province. But they need our help to push it across the finish line. We can't let them down!

Burung-burung Cenderawasih merupakan anggota famili Paradisaeidae (Burung Surga) dari ordo Passeriformes. Mereka ditemukan di Indonesia timur, pulau-pulau selat Torres, Papua Nugini, dan Australia timur. Burung anggota keluarga ini dikenal karena bulu burung jantan pada banyak jenisnya, terutama bulu yang sangat memanjang dan rumit yang tumbuh dari paruh, sayap atau kepalanya. Ukuran burung Cenderawasih mulai dari Cenderawasih raja pada 50 gram dan 15 cm hingga Cenderawasih paruh-sabit Hitam pada 110 cm dan Cenderawasih manukod jambul-bergulung pada 430 gram. Karena kecantikannya itu juga membuat burung ini dihargai sangat tinggi di Pasar Gelap dan menimbulkan pemburuan liar yang menyebabkan spesies ini semakin terancam punah. _________ Foto oleh @timlaman Loct 📍 West Papua, Indonesia _________ #CornellLabofOrnithology #redbirdofparadise #birdofparadise #burungcendrawasih #cendrawasih #Indonesia #RajaAmpat #TanahPapua #Papua #PapuaIndonesia #WestPapua #ConservationProvince #IndonesiaBiodiversity #shotonred @reddigitalcinema

This is one of the Raja Ampat Islands, home of the Red and Wilson’s Birds-of-Paradise, and part of the “Conservation Province” declared by the Province of West Papua, Indonesia. This province, along with its neighbor to the east, Papua Province, made a large commitment to a green future on Oct. 10 at a major international conference in Manokwari by committing to preserve 70% of their land as forest. This is hugely significant for our planet, and hats off to the bold leaders who have the courage to take this action.  #ConservationProvince#ProvinsiKonservasi #RajaAmpat#Waigeo#Papua#Indonesia#TanahPapua#PapuaBiodiversity@BirdsofParadiseProject.

Pelabuhan Teluk Bintuni. Berbeda dengan daerah lainnya yang ada di Papua Barat, Kabupaten Teluk Bintuni Pelabuhanya berada di Sungai. Konon dulunya terdapat banyak buaya, namun sekarang sudah jarang dijumpai karena habis diburu untuk diambil kulitnya. Disini juga pernah ada yang pelihara buaya dengan ukuran besar di belakang rumahnya, Buaya tersebut tidak memangsa manusia...ntah sekarang masih ada apa tidak. Teluk Bintuni terkenal dengan udang dan kepiting bakaunya. permintaan teman, semoga cocok untuk menghiasi dindingnya...😃 .

@Regran_ed from @natgeo - Photo by @TimLaman | Photobombed by a hornbill! There I was, up in the top of a tree trying to photograph the courtship display of a Red Bird-of-Paradise, when this Blythe’s Hornbill decided to land right in the middle of the bird-of-paradise action. At first the courting birds were a bit shy, and moved down below, but after the hornbill sat there for a few minutes, they realized he wasn’t a threat and moved back up to their favorite branches for display. In all my years photographing birds-of-paradise, this is one of the funniest things I’ve seen. What do you think this hornbill was thinking?

Фото @TimLaman / вид с воздуха на захватывающий остров Вайгео, с бухтой Кабуи на переднем плане и заливом Майялибит на расстоянии. Это один из островов Раджа Ампат, где обитают райские птицы красного и Вильсона, и часть “природоохранной провинции”, объявленной провинцией Западное Папуа, Индонезия. Эта провинция вместе со своим восточным соседом, провинцией Папуа, взяла на себя большие обязательства в отношении зеленого будущего в октябре. 10 на крупной международной конференции в Маноквари, взяв на себя обязательство сохранить 70% своей земли в качестве леса. Это чрезвычайно важно для нашей планеты, и я снимаю шляпу перед смелыми лидерами, которые имеют мужество принять это решение. #ConservationProvince, #ProvinsiKonservasi #RajaAmpat, #Достоинству Оценят, #Папуа #Индонезия, #TanahPapua, PapuaBiodiversity #, @BirdsofParadiseProject.

This is one of the Raja Ampat Islands, home of the Red and Wilson’s Birds-of-Paradise, and part of the “Conservation Province” declared by the Province of West Papua, Indonesia. This province, along with its neighbor to the east, Papua Province, made a large commitment to a green future on Oct. 10 at a major international conference in Manokwari by committing to preserve 70% of their land as forest. This is hugely significant for our planet, and hats off to the bold leaders who have the courage to take this action. #ConservationProvince, #ProvinsiKonservasi #RajaAmpat, #Waigeo, #Papua, #Indonesia, #TanahPapua, #PapuaBiodiversity, @BirdsofParadiseProject.

Support the creation of the world's first Conservation Province in #WestPapua, #Indonesia by signing the @sealegacy letter of support (link in bio) 🌊🐠🌱🇲🇨 #protectwestpapua #conservationprovince #biodiversity #marinebiodiversity #environmentprotection #sustainabledevelopment #Repost from @shawnheinrichs with @regram.app West Papua is a rich mix of reefs and rainforest - some of the most beautiful environments on the planet. The world's second largest rainforest, the largest mangrove forest, and some of the most bountiful reefs on Earth, all in one single stunningly beautiful region. 💙🇮🇩🌏 We are two days away from launching our three week film and media tour in which the team will travel across the entire region with an massive outdoor cinema system, projecting stories of inspiration and change, captured in interviews in the local language with community leaders, all wrapped together with stunning imagery and heartfelt stories in a new feature-length film, “Provinsi Konservasi.” Together we can protect the most important and biodiverse habitats left on Earth, for nature and for us. 💙✊🏽🇮🇩 #provinsikonservasi #akupapua #protectwestpapua @bluespherefoundation @conservationid @sea_legacy @indonesianoceanpride

Gunung Arfak. Kab. Pegunungan Arfak - Papua Barat. Biasa di singkat Pegaf. suku yang mendiaminya adalah suku arfak, suku asli dan terbesar di Papua Barat. tempatnya dingin dan berkabut, terdapat dua Danau besar: Danau Anggi dan Gidji/gida yang indah dikelilingi bukit. dan telah ditemukan Gua terdalam didunia. tempat ini menjadi incaran para Vloger karena keunikan dan keindahannya untuk dikabarkan ke dunia yang masih sedikit yang tahu. disini kita masih bisa menjumpai rumah kaki seribu, rumah asli suku arfak. Jarak dari Kab. Manokwari bisa ditempuh selama 3 jam dengan kendaraan khusus 4x4 Hilux atau dengan pesawat perintis hanya 20-30 menit saja. disini juga spot sunrise yang bagus, hanya harus bermalam disini. kurang beruntung waktu saya datang kesini pada musim hujan dan kabut jadi susah dapat cahaya bagus untuk menerbangkan drone karena kabut tebal. . #raw_drone #dronepilot #dronenature #droneindonesia #dronephotography #pegununganarfak #papuabarat #conservationprovince #provinsikonservasi #dronestagram #djindonesia #djiglobal #skygrapher #kalong #raw_community #droneporn #droneheroes #droneofficial #aerialphotography #beautifulplaces #anggilake #pesonaindonesia #indonesia #instadrone #droneoftheday #seascape #aftersunset #earthshotz #skysupply #arfak
