Eco-Peace Republic: Voluntour Weekend at the Pawikan Conservation Center

The pawikan is now endangered. This means, that it can soon go extinct! But why is it so important for us humans to care about the pawikans? The pawikan is part of two ecosystems-the beach or dune system and the marine system. All parts of the ecosystem are important. If we lose the pawikan, this will not only have an impact on the rest of marine life but also on us humans.
