Alas Purwo in Motion – Ngagelan

Alas Purwo National park located in the southeastern tip of Java Islands, situated on Blambangan Peninsula in Banyuwangi regency, East Java province. The park is famous for its wild Banteng and surfing location at Grajagan Bay. In this video, you can peek a look another beautiful side of the whole ecotourism in Alas Purwo, the name is Ngagelan.

Ngagelan is a special unit which take care of semi-natural sea turtles conservation management. We can enjoy the warm sand (some people visiting for a heat therapy), best natural scenes of virgin beach vegetation, wildlife, and sunset.

I am a forestry student, forest resource conservation department, Universitas Gadjah Mada. Me and my group friends, stay for two weeks in Alas Purwo National Park, for arrange a thematic research, titled: “Strategic Planning for Ecotourism at Semi Natural Sea Turtles Management, Ngagelan Special Unit, Alas Purwo National Park”.

We found that this site is the best sea turtles management in Indonesia, nevertheless, it is still lack of publication and public awareness. Multimedia is bridging the information and knowledge, between the academics, technical staffs, and common society. It is very important to make your knowledge distributes to the world, then it will be easy to apply the important matters to affect the society awareness, even the national policy.
