Expeditions Planned This Year Will Help Scientists Learn More About the Species

(Washington, D.C., February 25, 2021) After more than 170 years, locals in Kalimantan, Borneo, Indonesia, have helped rediscover the lost Black-browed Babbler. The bird has been missing since it was first described and collected by scientists around 1848. Since then, the trail to find the Black-browed Babbler has gone cold, despite several attempts to find it, leaving scientists in the dark about its ecology, population, and behavior. Many feared the species might have been extinct. The rediscovery was published in Oriental Bird Club’s journal BirdingASIA today, Feb. 25.

“Globally, there are more than 150 bird species that are currently ‘lost,’ with no confirmed observations in the past 10 years,” said John C. Mittermeier, Director of Threatened Species Outreach at American Bird Conservancy (ABC). “ABC, Global Wildlife Conservation, BirdLife International, and eBird are working together to help find these species. Hopefully, the rediscovery of the Black-browed Babbler will spark interest in finding other lost bird species in Asia and around the world.”

Muhammad Suranto and Muhammad Rizky Fauzan rediscovered the elusive Black-browed Babbler in October 2020 during a weekly trip to gather forest products in Southern Kalimantan Province, Borneo. After accidentally capturing a bird, which neither recognized, they took some photos and then released it unharmed back to the forest. They sent the photos to the local birdwatching group BW Galeatus in hopes that they would be able to identify it.

The group suspected it might be the Black-browed Babbler, and immediately contacted ornithologists Panji Gusti Akbar, Teguh Willy Nugroho, and Ding Li Yong, who compared the photos taken in southern Kalimantan to a current field guide description and photos of the only known specimen of the species, at the Naturalis Biodiversity Center in the Netherlands.

“It was a bit like a ‘Eureka!’ moment,” said Gusti Akbar, of the Indonesian bird conservation group Birdpacker and lead author of the paper. “This bird is often called ‘the biggest enigma in Indonesian ornithology.’ It’s mind-blowing to think that it’s not extinct and it’s still living in these lowland forests, but it’s also a little scary because we don’t know if the birds are safe or how much longer they may survive.”

The new photos of a live Black-browed Babbler immediately yielded new information about the species. Scientists now have a better understanding of the species’ true coloration. The babbler’s iris, bill, and legs were slightly different colors than that of the original specimen, but the difference was not surprising to scientists, since those areas often lose their tint and are artificially colored during the taxidermy process. 

The rediscovery is helping scientists and conservationists answer questions that have been swirling for more than a century. Scientists had never been sure where the bird lived in the wild. The original and only specimen collected by German geologist and naturalist Carl A.L.M. Schwaner between 1843 and 1848, and described by Charles Lucien Bonaparte in 1850, was initially mislabeled and described as being from Java. In 1895, naturalist Johann Büttikofer found that the specimen could not have been from Java because Schwaner had not collected any birds on the island. After reviewing and scrutinizing records of Schwaner’s travel in Indonesia, scientists speculated that he may have found the bird near the city of Martapura or Banjarmasin in Borneo.

“I think it is amazing that we managed to document one of the most remarkable zoological discoveries in Indonesia, largely through online communication, in the midst of the pandemic, which has hampered us from visiting the site,” said Teguh Willy Nugroho, who works in Sebangau National Park in Kalimantan and is one of the coauthors on the paper.

Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, scientists have not been able to travel to the area where the Black-browed Babbler was found, but they are working on a second paper to document its ecology and are hoping to work with local government agencies to plan expeditions later this year.

“When the species was first discovered, now-extinct birds like the Great Auk and Passenger Pigeon were still alive,” said Yong, a co-author on the paper and a Singapore-based conservationist with BirdLife International. “There is now a critical window of opportunity for conservationists to secure these forests to protect the babbler and other species.”

Scientists know very little about the Black-browed Babbler, but the Indonesian authors of the paper are hoping to work with local government agencies to quickly change that. They plan to travel to Borneo to identify exactly where the species lives, interview locals, study the babbler’s behavior, and assess the population — information that could be used to recommend a new status on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species. The bird is currently listed as Data Deficient and scientists are hoping to determine if and to what extent the species is threatened with extinction.

“Discoveries like this are incredible and give us so much hope that it’s possible to find other species that have been lost to science for decades or longer,” said Barney Long, Global Wildlife Conservation’s (GWC’s) Senior Director of Species Conservation and a lead on GWC’s Search for Lost Species program. “Collaborations between conservationists, local communities, and Indigenous peoples are crucial to learning about and saving these elusive species.”

There are more than 1,600 species of birds that live across the Indonesian archipelago. Scientists are hoping that the discovery may rekindle interest in surveying birds in under-researched areas. GWC and ABC, BirdLife International, and eBird are working to mount searches for lost birds around the world.

About Us

Hello! I’m Dr Charles Livingston, CEO of Lifeboost Coffee.

I sat down one afternoon with a cup of coffee and as I sat there, I started to think of all the reasons why 80% of the population indulge in some form of this wonderful beverage.

  • 1 I started with myself. Why do I drink coffee?
  • 2 When I wake up, I drink coffee as a morning ritual. I start out giving gratitude, doing affirmations and planning out my day.
  • 3 Being a chiropractor, I drink coffee for the health benefits.
  • 4 Being a business owner, a father, and an adoring husband to a beautiful wife, I drink coffee for energy and focus.
  • 5 When I meet up with friends or business colleagues, I drink coffee for conversation.
A Place of Focus
A Place of Focus A Place of Focus

When I drink coffee, it transports me to another place of thinking.

A place of focus. And starts the process of gaining clarity to work out problems that I face during the day or week. My focus increases. My mood changes, I engage with others and exchange ideas over this little cup of deliciousness. It still amazes me that coffee can do all of this!

An Experience Born An Experience Born

I’ve come to realize that I’m on a never ending quest to be a better person than I was yesterday. I choose to start each day on a positive note because that makes your entire day better (And it makes you much more pleasant to be around).

I began thinking to myself… wow, if coffee is this vital in my daily life and 80% of the population drinks it for similar reasons, then why not create a company that gives an amazing, positive experience? Why not create a coffee that provides all of the benefits with none of the pesticides or poisons, that tastes great and make the company in such a way that our mission is to help you be better than you were yesterday?

Lifeboost Coffee was born.

An Experience Born
We Love Coffee
We Love Coffee We Love Coffee

When I drink coffee, it transports me to another place of thinking.

We scoured the world to find the best, fairly traded coffee grown in a nationally protected area by people who hand pick and spring water wash only the best beans from the crop. This small planation lies in the mountains at an elevation of 5700 feet in the covering of guava trees. It is here, the secret to Lifeboost coffee lies.

As soon as I tasted this coffee, I fell in love. I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that this was the coffee bean that I wanted to represent Lifeboost.

We Love Ourselves We Love Ourselves

We Love Being Our Best Version Of Ourselves.

We believe starting your day off on a positive note will make or break your day. Every day should start with a ritual. You are constantly bombarded with negative messages throughout the day. Why start out that way?

Here’s how we start:

We Love Ourselves
Delicious Cup of Coffee
Delicious Cup of Coffee Delicious Cup of Coffee

It is starting our day with a delicious cup of coffee, gratitude, and affirmations. This is how we motivate ourselves to be the best person we can be and never stop being better than the day before.

That is what Lifeboost Coffee stands for. Starting your day off right so that you can be the best you possible. Your coffee is the cornerstone of a daily ritual that will ELEVATE you to be your best today. It will ENERGIZE your body and give you that oomph to get moving so that you can EXCEL.

That is our mission. That is our purpose.


ELEVATE Yourself & Others To Be The Best Version Of You

ENERGIZE Your Brain To Get Moving And Get Focused

EXCEL In Life

There is nothing like waking up in the morning and looking forward to that first cup to start off your day. It is the first domino that pushes all the others. Coffee is the secret elixir of the most famous people from generations past. It is the drink that bonds 80% of humans in this world.

 

We invite you to join us and start YOUR day off on a positive note.

Join our movement and let’s Lifeboost together!

A Big Help to my Family

I am happy to do business with Dr. Livingston. Because of Dr. Livingston, I get paid more than what I would receive in the normal marketplace. This allows me to afford a good education for my children.


Flowering Season

I planted this coffee plant a year ago with the profits I have made from the sale of coffee to Dr Livingston. It is flowering now and smells wonderful! I hope to have a good harvest when time comes and be able to offer Dr. Livingston and his customers a great cup of coffee.



Why Buy From Us?

Individual hand selection

Individual hand selection

Your cup of Lifeboost Premium Coffee comes from coffee beans that have been individually hand selected as the premium bean(s) of a harvest. Your coffee beans are lovingly cultivated by local farmers, after being grown slowly to full maturity in mountain shade.

Your beans are hand-picked — one at a time to provide the highest in Gourmet blends — and then fermented for 26 hours so the skin can be carefully removed without damaging the seed. No pesticides are ever used.

Next, your beans are spring water washed, then slowly sun-dried until they have the perfect humidity content of 11.5%. Finally, your beans transition into a 30-day “rest” period, which allows the beans to slowly complete their taste-enhancing richness. You literally are getting the “cream of the crop” in layman’s terms.

The Lifeboost Premium Coffee coffee beans have been recognized worldwide through competitions, where it has been chosen as the “World’s Premier Cup” and consumed by country’s Presidents and leaders and on an international level. Lifeboost Premium Coffee Coffee is the preferred coffee of many and has risen to The Winners Circle.
The problem of many coffees is that they contain mycotoxins

The problem of many coffees is that they contain mycotoxins

Mycotoxins are a metabolite that is produced by molds which are detrimental to your health. They can cause a wide range of health problems like cardiomyopathy, hypertension, cancer, and kidney disease. One study found that 91.7% of the coffee beans were contaminated with mold before they were processed. One other study showed that 52% of green coffee beans and about 50% of brewed coffees are moldy.

Mycotoxins are commonly found in low quality coffee. This is because companies use lower quality beans that have higher concentrations of mold and they use processing techniques to add flavor that increase the amounts of mold.
Most coffees are blended beans

Most coffees are blended beans

Blends of coffee are bad because they incorporate beans from different areas in the blend which increases the chances that there will be moldy beans. I want to make clear that, plain and simple, blending high quality beans with low quality beans is done to make a bag of coffee more profitable. It’s an easy way to make a cheap bag of coffee into a much more expensive bag simply by adding 10-20% of high quality beans.

If the fillers are very low quality beans, the fine aroma of the original beans is overtaken by the imperfections of the low end fillers. That is when your brand name coffee needs to be sprayed with chemically produced coffee aroma in order to be appealing.

Also, coffee this bad will generate a harsh feeling in your throat and will leave a lingering bad aftertaste that ranges between bitter and metallic. Generally, makers of this coffee will resort to a very dark roast in order to create the perception of "richness" in the cup while narrowing the range of aroma & flavor and hiding the low quality.

What we do to avoid mycotoxins in our coffee:

  • Our coffee is prepared using a wet and a dry process with a slight variation to avoid any mycotoxins.
  • The coffee is first washed in pure, spring mountain water, but we do not allow the coffee beans to ferment, as is usually done during the wet process. In order to avoid the generation of mycotoxins we employ a hybrid of sorts referred to as the mechanical process (or forced demicuilage) with no fermentation.
    • A sub point of this is that a large amount of the reason why mycotoxins occur is because of poor quality control of the water tanks and water sources.
  • The coffee is grown at over a mile in altitude (5,700 ft +), greatly reducing the ability for the fungi/molds that create mycotoxins to even occur.
  • The coffee comes from a single origin meaning the chance of mycotoxic contamination from other sources is eliminated.
  • After the coffee has been washed, beans are pulpled (removed of their outer covering) and let to dry in the sun for a few days serving a double purpose of eliminating any molds and mycotoxins that may have formed while being exposed to the water as well as giving the coffee a "rest period" period before roasting.
  • We have very rigorous health and quality standards; before any batch is to be roasted the coffee is tested in a lab to ensure several factors are in check including; quality, molds, moisture content, consistency, and others.
  • In the final step, coffee is roasted which effectively eliminates all bacteria, fungi, molds and the mycotoxins these may have generated.
  • As a final precaution, each shipment of coffee is tested once again by the The Agriculture Department before it is allowed to leave the country. If the coffee has any mycotoxic presence the shipment is not allowed to leave the country.

In the docu-series Wild Lands Wild Horses, beautiful cinematography that takes place in the wild is woven into exclusive conversations with scientists, ranchers, government officials, and wildlife advocates, who — despite their differences — all share the same goal:

TO KEEP THE WEST WILD.

"Wild Lands Wild Horses"

America’s wild horses are in crisis.

For centuries horses have ploughed our fields and carried us into battle. Caught in the crossfire over land use rights and a shrinking wild landscape, America’s wild horses are struggling to survive.

Some still roam wild, but those thousands that have been gathered are held in government contracted facilities with little hope for adoption.

150 million acres of western public lands belong to all of us, and we can do right by its wildlife. But the issues are complex, and won’t be solved by shouting on social media.

Join wildlife photographers Jamie Baldanza and Deb Lee Carson on their mission to document America’s most elusive herds of wild horses and examine their politically complicated lives.

CONVERSATIONS

Wild Lands, Wild Horses is not here to preach.

Interviews with ranchers, advocates, scientists, government employees, and politicians combine to tell an honest story about the complexities of the modern American West, and the threats that face the remaining population of wild horses.



WHERE WILL WE GO IN THE SERIES?

Screen Shot 2020-02-15 at 10.06.57 AM.pnghttps://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content

We will be visiting California, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, and North Dakota!




WHY AM I DOING THIS? 

Living in New Jersey, an area of the United States with very little experience or positive exposure to America’s wild horses, I realized that they are desperately in need of more engaging and constructive publicity. In the face of their ongoing battles to stay on the range and for those 45,000 wild horses who are in need of adoptive homes, my goal with "Wild Lands. Wild Horses." is to heighten America’s awareness through truth and in-film documentation. I hope to save our iconic western heritage, and offer solutions that will work for all special interest groups involved in our public lands.
