ITM’s biodiversity conservation activity was done together with Purwodadi Botanical Garden Plantation Conservation Association (BKT) in East Java under the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI). The activity was carried out in two mining locations of ITM’s subsidiaries, which are Bharinto Ekatama (BEK) (since 2010) and Indominco Mandiri (IMM) (since 2012).
Since 2009, the activity has passed several phases in general, which are:
- Study and Planning,
- Plant Collection.
- Plant Conservation,
- Biodiversity Analysis,
- Genetics Mapping,
- Recovery Modelling.
- People Engagement (Process repeated in other mining locations).
These sequences are a reference model that can be used for similar activities in other areas.
