(Honolulu, Hawaii) – EcoInternet is thrilled to announce that our international campaign to save the ancient Karawari indigenous cave art and adjoining rainforests from mining in Papua New Guinea  has been successful. Certainly the exemplary organizing by local residents to resist Australia and Malaysian mining and logging interests was the primary reason plans to mine the area have been dropped for now . Yet several thousand people from 110 countries sending some 238,629 protest emails through EcoInternet are widely acknowledged to have had significant positive impact on the outcome as well.
“EcoInternet specializes in internationalizing local environmental protest, and over the past two decades we have had a hand in saving vast tracts of rainforests globally, particularly in Papua New Guinea (PNG). Virtually every community in rainforest rich PNG is threatened by some deceptive ploy to steal their resources while leaving local peoples destitute. We hope that being based in Honolulu, Hawaii, EcoInternet is better placed to help end this type of ecocidal development in the Pacific once and for all,” explains EcoInternet President, Dr. Glen Barry.
EcoInternet is a registered 501c3 non-profit, and is entirely dependent upon users for financial support. EcoInternet has recently raised a modest $12,000 and are trying to raise another $2,500 before the end of January when the 2014 year-end fund-raiser wraps up. Please donate what you can at http://forests.org/shared/donate/.

42 Rare Species Wiped Out By Logging A logging company is planning to cut down half of the forests on Woodlark Island in Papua New Guinea. Without international pressure, the government will allow the destruction of these forests, which are home to dozens of rare and endangered species. Please sign the petition today! Tell the Government of Papau New Guinea to Protect Woodlark Island! http://www.thepetitionsite.com/856/304/392/help-save-the-rare-animals-and-forests-of-woodlark-island-from-logging-companies/
hanks for the news Jesco.
Two volcanoes half a world apart are causing havoc today: Several flights have been diverted around an eruption in Papua New Guinea, and authorities in Iceland briefly put aviation on highest alert (again) owing to a temperamental Mount Bardarbunga.
