Monitoring and Conservation of the Sea Turtle Nesting Population at Yembekaki Beach on the Waigeo Island of West Papua – IndonesiaThe project aim is to evaluate if Yembekaki beach in the northern part of Waigeo Island, Raja Ampat, Indonesia, represents a significant a rookery for the western Pacific leatherback.
Program Extension of Cost-Effective Mangrove Rehabilitation Focussing on Restoration of HydrologyThis project will attempt to restore an area of mangrove from disused shrimp farm pond using community participation and focussing on the restoration of hydrology.
Cost Effective Mangrove Rehabilitation Focusing on Restoration of HydrologyMany mangrove rehabilitation projects in Indonesia have experienced technical failure due to the incorrect assumption that degraded coastal lands that were once inhabited by mangroves can be re-established by simply replanting mangrove seedlings.
Completion of the Project on Cost-Effective Mangrove Rehabilitation Focussing on Restoration of HydrologyThis project aims to understand comprehensively and to promote the best practice of hydrological mangrove restoration technique that may contribute significantly for the improvement of mangrove rehabilitation goal.
Wanariset Orangutan Reintroduction ProjectThis project assesses techniques of reintroducing orphan or captured orang-utans to the wild in Borneo.

The Orangutan Tropical Peatland Research Project: Monitoring Ape Populations in the Sabangau Forest, Central Kalimantan, IndonesiaThis project aims to design and implement an ecological-monitoring program in the Sabangau Forest that provides practical and constructive feedback for conservation management activities.
Conservation at Gede-Pangrango National Park and Cibulao Nature Reserve, West Java, IndonesiaThis project works in two Indonesian national parks, monitoring bird populations and training local teams to carry out surveys.
Orang-utans and Gibbons Compared – Implications of Differences in Feeding and Behavioural Ecology for ConservationWe aim to identify and classify important orang-utan and gibbon foods in the Sebangau National Park and to study the feeding behaviour and patterns of these apes to formulate better park management plans for both the apes and their foods.
Orang-utans and Gibbons Compared: Implications of Differences in Feeding and Behavioural Ecology for ConservationThis project aims to understand the behaviour and ecology of the two Asian apes in a degraded peat-swamp forest and to use that information for the protection of the forest ecosystem through collaboration with Indonesian researchers and organisations.
Establishments of Plant Species Diversity Following 2010 Catastrophic Eruption of Mt Merapi, Java Indonesia: Implication for Conservation and RestorationMost recent eruption of Mt. Merapi occurred in 2010 has brought up idea of how Indonesian ecologists can document the establishment of pioneer species and the subsequent species on Mt. Merapi volcano in order to generate baseline data that will be useful for managers working with Merapi to initiate rehabilitation programs.
Fragmentation, Plant Invasion and Native Species Conservation in Tropical Forest Landscape of Mt. MerapiMt. Merapi has periodic eruptions that left the forest to become disturbed and fragmented. Some of these areas are in a successional process. Before the 2010 eruption, there were other eruptions such as in 2006 and 1994. From different perspectives, colonizers species can also be an invasive. These studies will aims to identify colonizer species in each of the areas and assess them weather or not they will become invasive and to understand the correlation between successional ages and species diversity with distribution and abundance of invasive species.
Public Awareness Campaign to Enhance the Conservation of Migratory Waterbird and their Habitat in Eastern Beach of North SumatraThis project looks at the in land problems of this region - bird hunting, infrastructure developing, mangrove converse of fish exploring, mangrove cutting down trees for industry development.
Leopard Movement in IndonesiaAssessment of Leopard movements from Gunung Halimun to Gunung Salak, Indonesia
Kinabatangan River Spirit Initiative: Contributing to Freshwater Conservation and Sustainable Livelihoods in the Lower Kinabatangan RiverThe Kinabatangan River Spirit Initiative seeks to empower local riverine communities for local-level action in the Lower Kinabatangan Catchment, North Borneo, and improve river health, focusing on the long-term viability of fish populations.
Frogs Diversity for Ecological Monitoring in Karimata Island, IndonesiaThis study aimed to assess environmental health through frogs’ diversity in Karimata island.
Development of Forest Honey for Wetlands Conservation and Community Income Generation in Danau Sentarum National Park, West KalimantanThis project seeks to develop honey as an alternative but significant source of income with minimal ecological impact for wetlands conservation in Danau Sentarum National Park, West Kalimantan.
Tangkoko Conservation Education, Conservation Education Programme around the Tangkoko-Duasudara-Batuangus Nature Reserves in North Sulawesi, IndonesiaThis project’s aim is to raise local population’s awareness in order to reduce human negative impact on the Tangkoko-Batuangus-Duasudara nature reserves and their wildlife, especially the endemic crested macaques.
Sun Bears in Human-Dominated Landscapes: Distribution, Population Trends and Conflicts in Kerinci Seblat Region, SumatraThis research originates from the priorities highlighted in the IUCN/SSC Sun Bear Conservation Action Plan a critical one of which is to address the urgent need to accurately assess the conservation status of sun bears. This research aims to determine factors underlying the population trends and distribution of sun bears, their response to deforestation, the extent to which sun bears conflict with people, and to examine how they adapt to commercial landscapes.
Bird Seed Dispersal and Restoration of the Sundaland Biodiversity Hotspot in SumatraThe aim of this project is to assess bird seed dispersal service in assisting regeneration of the secondary lowland forest in Sumatra, Indonesia.
Population Monitoring and Study of Daily Activities of the Malayan Tapir (Tapirus Indicus) through the Use of the Camera Trapping Technique in Taratak Forest Reserve, Sumatra, IndonesiaThis project is part of a long-term study designed to evaluate the effects of deforestation on populations of Malayan tapir in West Sumatra.
Population Monitoring and Conservation of Malayan Tapir in Taratak Forest Reserve, SumatraThere are two main activities that will be conducted during this program, first monitoring of Malayan tapir and other wildlife inhabit the study area, secondly to improve local community participation on wildlife conservation.
Malayan Tapir (Tapirus Indicus) Conservation ProjectProject proposed is expanded of previous Malayan tapir monitoring studies that were supported by Rufford Small Grant and other donors. Camera traps will be operated on four conservation areas which not yet surveyed on previous studies.
