Wild Water Indonesia 


Wild Water Indonesia is a voluntary conservation network in Indonesia, focusing on aquatic ecosystems and its inhabitants.

WWI’s main concerns are:

1. Campaign for the safeguard of all waters and sustainable activities in all sectors involved with water. From recreational to industrial.
2. Fight destructive fishing activities such as electro, poison and fish bombing.

These destructive fishing methods have caused a tremendous loss of natural balance in the Indonesian aquatic ecosystem. As a result, the carrying capacity of nature to support life forms has drastically diminished. The legal basis for WWI’s concerns is grounded in the law of the Republic of Indonesia no. 31/2004 Article 84, Paragraph 1 jo Law no. 45/2009 Article 85 about fisheries. The fact that WWI volunteers are individuals, who have no authority on law enforcement and sanction, the actions of WWI friends is realized in a persuasive form of appeal and inspiration through exemplary care of the waters.
