Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park Authority planted Pinanga javana

Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park Center planted the Pinang Jawa (Pinanga javana Blume) tree to prevent extinction. National park authorities in East Java, Indonesia, on Tuesday 5 February 2018 planted hundreds of Pinang Jawa seedlings belonging to Category A Conservation Priority species.

The conservation action was led by the Head of Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park authority, John Kenedie, and the community. Pinang Jawa is one of the Arecaceae family species in spread only in Java Island. The "endangered" status was published by the World Conservation Monitoring Center in 1997.

"In this region, there are 900 species of flora, one of which is a plant belonging to the conservation priority is Pinang Jawa," said Kenedie in Lumajang, East Java, Indonesia.

The Government of Indonesia in 1999 has issued a regulation stating that Pinang Jawa is in protected status. The community harvests the soft end of the stem for food. Pinang Jawa are also often eaten directly because of the sweet and fresh taste. Kenedie said Bromo Tenger Semeru has been seeking the cultivation of this tree since 2013

Until now the Ranu Tompe expedition finds the fruits of Pinang Jawa ready for the seedlings and has been brought to the Ranu Pani Resort nursery. It takes at least 7 months and the cultivation is continued in 2016 at Ranu Darungan Resort at an altitude of 700 meters within 3 months.

"Now it has 350 seedlings ready for planting," Kenedie said.

Kenedie said that the planting of Pinang Jawa is an effort to manage the plant species whose utilization is done wisely. This is done to ensure continuity of supply and keep improving the quality of diversity.
