No local researchers interested in tropical ecology in general or specific genera of flora and fauna make our discussion on biodiversity always challenged and need proof. At the same time the forests were cut for timber and development. We need more local scientists.

Not that easy to get support from cooperate sectors to support environmental activities especially sponsoring projects on environment. To convince them is a big challenge, when change the officer in-charge will be another challenge, meeting experts and executives can be another great challenge because everybody have ideas and experience. The most influence persons may be from the funder. As chief judge convincing towards making decision is a great challenge. BUT getting results is a great success.
