The Javan eagle is an endemic species that is only found on the island of Java. As one of the endemic animals, this species includes animals that face the risk of extinction due to reduced habitat and rampant poaching. In fact, this bird is listed as “endangered” in the Red Data Book.
Seeing these conditions, PT Smelting through “Smelting Cares” manifests its concern for the environment by conducting “Socialization of Conservation Education for the Javan Eagle”, as well as inaugurating the “Balik ka Bumi” Saung at the Cimungkad Java Eagle Conservation Education Center (27/05).

The activity began with welcoming invited guests from elementary school children, followed by a series of game activities that tested their dexterity and cooperation, after which they were given education about Javan Eagle Conservation.
The activity continued in the afternoon until the afternoon with a series of welcoming events from each party present, singing the national anthem, introducing the Javanese eagle ambassador, giving placards, distributing prizes, group photos and finally the inauguration of Saung “Balik ka Bumi” and giving souvenirs.
