Please, Help

Dear Friends and Readers,
I am writing to ask for your help to support the medical treatment of my younger brother Pierre Roring. He is suffering from a life threatening cancer on his neck. The tumor is very big and he cannot eat solid food.

We are trying to raise fund through gofundme for him so that we could send him to a hospital that has got modern equipment to treat cancer patients in a big city in Indonesia. Here is the link for donations:
We also ask for your prayer to God to help and heal Pierre in his fight against cancer. You could also help by sharing this message to your friends and other people.
Thank you for your donation and message of supports.
Best Wishes,
Charles Roring

Sightseeing and Birdwatching in Kabui Karst

There are a lot of karst islets inside Kabui bay of Raja Ampat. I often travel around this bay by boat when I guide tourists on sightseeing and birdwatching trip in West Papua. Because of its remote location, very few people like to see them. 
Karst in Kabui bay
For birdwatchers, birding in the karst of Kabui bay is a challenging adventure. Holding binoculars and watching birds while standing on a small boat are quite difficult especially when the sea is a little rough. There are some beaches which can be used as good sites for birding. My favorite choice is Lesser Urai island and the beaches of Gam island that face Kabui bay. I can use my spotting scope at this beach. Sea birds such as White-breasted Woodswallow, Spice Imperial Pigeon, Beach Kingfisher, Willie Wagtail, Pacific Swallow as well as Lesser-crested Tern, Lesser Frigatebird, Striated Heron, and Eastern Osprey are the ones that I often see in the coastal area of Kabui.

There are also other birds such as Hooded Butcherbird, Rainbow Bee-eater, Palm Cockatoo, Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, Eclectus Parrot, Great Cuckoo-Dove, Puff-backed Meliphaga, and female Red Bird of Paradise. 
The scenery of karst formations in Kabui bay was beautiful. I often see dolphins on the surface of the sea.
