Kristina Medici lives and works in Bologna (Italy). Tireless traveler has seen many places, met people and encountered strange animals.
She has studied Ethology and feels strongly about human beings sharing their home (the Earth) with all the other animals.
In the summer of 2002 was for the first time in Malaysian Borneo to see the Proboscis Monkeys in their natural habitat. There she came to realize, on a more personal level, what was going on in the Bornean Jungle.
Once returning to Europe, Kristina decided to immediately create the Proboscis Monkeys Project and the first edition of this site to inform people about this valued but endangered species.
During these years she has been in contact with scientists, photographers, journalists, television productions all those interested in the large nose monkeys.
Hundreds of people from all over the world have written to Kristina to support the Project, to ask questions and to share their genuine love for this incredible species.
Thanks to everyone who visited the first edition of this site, who wrote and signed the petition.
The email was perhaps the most memorable is that of a twelve year old child asking for directions to go alone in Borneo to see the Proboscis Monkeys. The little explorer was not at all convinced of the response of his parents who told him that the place was too remote and wild!
In 2007 kristina went back to Borneo and has found the situation much worse. You can imagine how things are today.
The objective of this new website is to move all the fans of Proboscis Monkeys from information to real ACTION.
Today we have a new weapon: the social networks! We must be able to lobby and engage with those few people who can really change the destiny of Borneo and its wonderful wildlife.
It’s our last chance to avoid Proboscis Monkeys extinction.Get in touch with Kristina
