Wulan : Environmentalist
Posted on July 31 2019
She's a baby-wearing, nature-loving mama from Indonesia. If you have a case of wanderlust, her Instagram might only make it worse - - - but in all the best ways! We love following her travels and her adventures as a mother. She's also extremely passionate about taking care of the earth and making sure it's still just as beautiful for future generations.

We asked Wulan to share about the hats she wears and here's what she said:
"My life has led me to wear many "hats". I am a mother, a traveler and an environmentalist, among many other things. Out of all of those though, the most rewarding by far has been that of mother.
Before becoming one, I saw motherhood as a something noble, but also time consuming and tough. Now all that is true, but to be honest, I never thought it would be this hilarious! To see your child grow and do some of the funniest things you can think of is so much more rewarding than what I thought it could be."
"As tough as motherhood can be though, the "hat" that is really tough is that of an environmentalist. As a mother and someone who cares deeply about our planet and the wonderful creatures that live on it, I want to make sure that future generations (my daughter included) has the opportunity to appreciate all that Earth has to offer. However, it is tough to move people to action.
It's one thing to say you care about the environment, it's a whole other to actually do something to save it. I have worked for a long time to spread awareness and promote action in order to help reverse the damage we humans have done to our environment."
"I believe to move people to action, they have to see what is happening up close. That is why I am an active scuba diver, working with local dive companies to promote better diving practices as well as bring the public to see the impact we have on the ocean.
I have many things and people that inspire me, but if I have to narrow it down, it would be Jane Goodall for her tremendous work in conservation, and the mothers out there that have shown the world that they can still do the things they are passionate about and be a great mother at the same time."
