Topic: Exploring Wildlife of Indonesia - In the Footsteps of Alfred Wallace
Sulawesi Dwarf Kingfisher, John Richardson, Black-billed Kingfisher
Description: "My first in-depth view of Indonesia includes Sulawesi, Halmahera, Flores & Komodo, and Bali. All the islands are biological hotspots with extraordinary endemic fauna and flora found nowhere else. All the islands have parks, some with the coveted World Heritage Site distinction. Some of the parks are so remote the animals do not fear you and allow a careful approach with camera. Despite the beauty and remoteness of this part of the Earth, the human factor weighs heavily on its future."
