Summer Course on Bio-Geology of Belitong Geopark

The 2nd Summer Course on Bio-Geology of Belitong Geopark

Belitung, or in English: Billiton, is a tropical island located on the east coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. The biodiversity of Belitung Island attracted many scientists to visit the island to observe and learn its richness and potency. Last year, on 20-25 November 2018, Department of Biology, IPB University successfully organized the 1st Summer Course on Biology of Belitong Geopark which has a theme of Towards Belitong UNESCO Global Geopark. This event was participated by students of the Department of Biology (IPB University), Osaka University (Japan), Kanazawa University (Japan), Kasetsart University (Thailand), and Universiti Putra Malaysia (Malaysia). They visited 10 geosites in Belitong Island to investigate the biodiversity of lichen, mushroom, mollusk, primate, moss, fish, and bird while learned some techniques related to these organisms. 

This year event will have a rebranding name that is Summer Course on Bio-Geology of Belitong Geopark to accommodate the needs of broadening insight in biology and geology of the Geopark.

Cerita: Enam Hari Menjelajah Geopark Belitong

Sebanyak 15 mahasiswa dalam dan luar negeri berpetualang ke pulau Belitong dalam suatu kegiatan Summer Course. Pada kegiatan yang bertajuk Summer Course on Biology of Belitong Geopark, _Towards Belitong UNESCO Global Geopark_, Departemen Biologi, Fakultas Matematika dan Ilmu Pengetahuan Alam, Institut Pertanian Bogor, mengajak para peserta untuk mengenal lebih dekat biodiversitas dan bioprospeksi dari 10 Geosite, yang terhimpun dalam Geopark Nasional Belitong. Pada kegiatan ini, para peserta berasal dari Departemen Biologi IPB, Osaka University Jepang, Kanazawa University Jepang, Universiti Putra Malaysia, dan Kasetsart University Thailand.

Dimulai pada 20 sampai dengan 25 November 2018, kegiatan ini merupakan hasil kerjasama Departemen Biologi dengan Badan Pengelola Geopark Belitong, Pemerintah Kabupaten (Pemkab) Belitung, dan Pemkab Belitung Timur. Selama 6 hari, beberapa dosen Departemen Biologi dengan berbagai keahliannya memandu peserta untuk mengenal lumut, lebah tak bersengat, primata lokal, liken, pupuk hayati, ikan air tawar, moluska, dan biota lainnya di berbagai geosite di pulau Belitong. Selain itu, para peserta dan beberapa siswa lokal mengikuti kegiatan menanam bibit pohon pada lokasi bekas tambang.

“Berbagai geosite di pulau Belitung tidak hanya mudah diakses tetapi juga masih alami. Ini bagus untuk pemanfaatan ke depannya”, ujar Tsukiko Myojo, mahasiswa asal Kanazawa University. Sementara itu, Zana Ruhaizat, mahasiswa University Putra Malaysia merasa sangat senang bisa menjumpai habitat dengan lebih dari 100 spesies ikan air tawar di dalamnya.

“Selain sebagai dukungan kepada Festival Geopark Belitong III, Summer Course ini akan mengenalkan biodiversitas pulau Belitong sebagai kawasan geo-edukasi ke dunia internasional. Sehingga, dukungan untuk memperoleh predikat UNESCO Global Geopark akan menguat”, ujar Hirmas Fuady Putra, MSi, koordinator kegiatan dari Departemen Biologi. “Ke depannya, kerjasama Departemen Biologi akan terus diperluas sebagai bagian dari kontribusi departemen untuk masyarakat”, lanjutnya.
