Our colleagues from the Cikananga Conservation Breeding Centre are proud to announce that the Arfah Memorial Fund is now open for applications, until 25 September 2021.
The aim and purpose of the Arfah Nasution Memorial Fund is to provide opportunity for young Indonesian women working in conservation to apply for financial support for travel and general expenses which will enable them to gain experience by attending training opportunities and/or conferences in Indonesia or abroad.
The memorial Fund is dedicated to the memory of our beloved colleague and friend Arfah Nasution. Arfah dedicated her life to nature conservation from an early age and worked for the Cikananga Foundation as our biologist from 2014 to 2020. In the summer of 2020 she was diagnosed with a brain tumour, a battle that she lost in September 2020.
