The Mentawai Islands are recognized internationally as one of the few remaining places on the planet as having unique cultural and ecological assets. These need to be preserved, not exploited and destroyed. We’ve seen marine environments spoiled as plastics and pollutants have poisoned once pristine waterways as no or little education has been provided on waste management or recycling options. A Perfect Foundation has been taking action since 2014. Together, we need to collectively take proactive action to protect this unique marine and forested environment.
