Pulau Seribu!

This means 1000 islands. These are islands that lay off of the northern side of Java. There are about 12,000 people living scattered throughout these islands on the Java Sea. The Java Sea extends upward to Kalimantan (Borneo). About 3 hours out on a ferry from Jakarta, there is a small island called Pramuka. This island is dedicated by the Forestry Government as a place where corals can be aquacultured. This whole area is a national marine park, but to help the locals to make a living, an aquaculture project was introduced. Not too many people live on this island and is shared with a turtle hatchery. I'll post pictures and info later on another post. The next two or three posts will be dedicated to this island and its activities. For now, these are some images of this desolate little place.
