Biodiversity owned by Indonesia is one of the natural resources that should be preserved. The reason is, this diversity (biodiversity) is what makes the life of the human environment continue to run until the next generation. Since 2013 until now, through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, Bio Farma has carried out several activities related to biodiversity conservation activities.
For Bio Farma, biodiversity is a gift that must be preserved. Thus, in 2020, Bio Farma's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) will focus on programs in the field of biodiversity in several regional locations in West Java. Bio Farma's CSR has a goal, to have a positive impact on biodiversity and participate in the protection of the natural habitats of flora and fauna in Indonesia. Therefore, Bio Farma's CSR conducted a biodiversity protection program in one of the conservation areas in Leuwiliang Village, Bandung Regency, namely the Buru Masigit Kareumbi Park (TBMK).
This TBMK conservation area has dozens of biodiversity in it. The TBMK Conservation Area is one of the natural habitats for flora and fauna in Indonesia. Here are some types of fauna that exist in the Masigit Kareumbi Hunting Park. For its own fauna, Bio Farma has succeeded in conserving 69 animal species from various families, consisting of 45 birds, 6 mammals, and 18 butterflies. As the home of flora and fauna, this TBMK Conservation Area certainly needs to be maintained for its beauty.
However, over time some of the land in the TBMK Conservation Area has decreased due to some land being converted. This makes the problem of critical land in the TBMK area. Therefore, Bio Farma's CSR program has created a Critical Land Rehabilitation program in several TBMK Conservation Areas by carrying out reforestation to restore the function of the land. In addition, Bio Farma's CSR also conducted a Tree Guardian program in the TBMK area in the Ciengang Petak 70 block. In this tree guardian program, Bio Farma's CSR succeeded in planting 500 seeds for the tree guardian program. The following is a list of plants that were successfully planted by Bio Farma in the Guardian Tree program. During the 2018 - 2019 period, Bio Farma's CSR managed to plant seven types of trees, including Morinda sp, Manglietia glauca, Syzygium zelyanicum sp, Schima wallichii sp, Terminalia catappa, sp.
Bio Farma's activities to protect biodiversity are carried out, among others, through those declared as critically endangered (CR/critically endangered) and rare/endangered endemic flora. Determination of the status of fauna and flora species refers to the Red List published by the International Union for Conservation (IUCN). Since 2011 - 2019, Bio Farma has conserved 22 Fauna and 8 Flora with Critically Endangered (CR) status.
