The Moluccas Islands once were the spice chambers of Europe. Cloves and nutmeg were only grown on the remote islands, which today are part of Indonesia. The British, Portuguese and Dutch waged wars over the treasures of the Moluccas. Nutmeg farmer Ponky maintains a 13-generation-old tradition as a nutmeg farmer and cloves are harvested right next to the road. The biodiversity of the islands has inspired researchers and bird thieves alike. Today, ex-bird thief Soni Sapulete protects the islands' unique fauna, including the Ambon king parrot and Megabats, the mythological guardians of the nutmeg.
