Here comes "Metamorfosa!"

These three campaign managers are a part of a cohort that has affectionately named themselves “Metamorfosa” (= metamorphosis). A blog posted by their Pride Program Manager in Bogor explains: "as they are working to create changes, they themselves is in the process of being change, in a Pride program that is also had changed – for a better life, better environment, better world to live in."

These Indonesian campaigns are beginning to thrive! Rare’s first university training phase in Indonesia, which lasted nine weeks, ended December 19, 2008. The campaign managers Eddy, Bobby and Ade have returned to their sites and are working on a comprehensive threat assessment in their sites, whose results will serve as the basis for planning their year-long Pride campaigns.

The campaign managers are also hosting a series of stakeholder meetings to assess the opinions, interests and behaviors of various groups, such as farmers. By working at this local level, the campaign managers not only gain first hand information and build relationships with the local people, but they engage community members in the process of communicating about conservation.
