FAMILY VACATION IN TANGKOKO NATURE RESERVE

Indonesia classifies jungle into four main types. They are National Park, Nature Reserve, Wildlife Sanctuary and Protected Forest. Each classification of jungle has its own function and purpose. But, the main purpose of them is to protect the nature from deforestation. We all know that deforestation is number one in destroying wildlives. Deforestation can be compared to mass annihilation of human settlements. Therefore, government of Indonesia has anticipated the destruction with many regulations.

Tangkoko Batu Angus is an area of jungle in Minahasa Peninsula. It is very unique and yet beautiful. The floras and faunas in this Nature Reserve are origin and native to the island. Some species of the animals are endemic as well. In Minahasa Peninsula, Tangkoko Batu Angus remains genuine and unchanged. It fulfilled the criteria of Nature Reserve. Thus, government of Indonesia and North Sulawesi establish it as Nature Reserve. Why not a National Park? The answer is the coverage area of National park is far bigger than a Nature Reserve.

THE SPECIALTY OF NATURE RESERVE

Tangkoko Nature Reserve is home for many endemic animals of Sulawesi. Visitors can see black crested macaques or Sulawesi Black Macaques there easily. But, the star of this nature reserve is tarsius. Both primates are endemic to Minahasa peninsula. Beside them are Sulawesi bear cuscus, red-knobbed hornbill, kingfisher, mini dragon or the flying lizard and many more.

One arrangement of this family vacation is to visit this nature reserve. Your family will stay in one inn beside the nature reserve and during the day you will wander inside it. By visiting the nature reserve on your family vacation, you are teaching your children to care more of the wildlives. Also, you are contributing to the conservation efforts for perpetuity of the Nature Reserve.

FAMILY VACATION ON RING OF FIRE OF THE PACIFIC

Indonesia is home for volcanoes. There are 150 volcanoes registered in the central volcano observatory. 127 are active volcanoes. These volcanoes are part of two ring of fires. The occidental line is part of mediteranian ring, while the oriental line is part of the Pacific. Sulawesi is part of oriental line of volcanoes. There are 10 volcanoes belong to Sulawesi side. 9 of them are in North Sulawesi. Thus, the region is the most volcanic area over whole island.
