The Milky stork has a small, declining population owing to loss of coastal habitat, hunting and trade. These factors are predicted to cause rapid declines in the near future. It therefore qualifies as Vulnerable (Birdlife International 2001 and Birdlife International 2004). Given that most of the population occurs in Sumatra, it is trend there that largely determine the species status.
The project “Survey and conservation of bird diversity in Bangka Island, Sumatra, Indonesia” will serve a basic data to give information on diversity, recent population, status, distribution, movements, condition of remaining habitats, breeding sites, threats and other aspects on birds in Bangka Island.
December 2004 earthquake and ensuing tsunami found extensive coral damage in Pulau Weh, Aceh. However, subsequent marine surveys conducted by the University of Syiah Kuala and observations by local dive operators have found that the subsequent and insidious effects of sedimentation have actually resulted in much greater coral destruction than previously estimated.
Baru Pangkalan Jambu villages is one of buffer zone in the Southern part of Kerinci Seblat National Park. This village has “ the adat forest ” (tribal forest) based on decree of Head of Merangin District No. 225 date of 15 June 1993, with wide area 754ha.
The remaining forest in this area is both inside and outside the protected areas under the management of government management. There are 13 villages in sub-district of Jantho that depend on the water source for the daily use and NTFP (the likes of honey and rattans).
The project is initiated to promote the conservation of Seblat as an area of important biodiversity. We also aim to campaign for the inclusion of the region adjacent to the area as a wildlife corridor linking Seblat to Kerinci Seblat National Park in order to increase the wildlife biodiversity of both.
The Endangered green peafowl (Pavo muticus) has undergone a significant decline across its range. Recently, several viable populations have been located, but the detailed distribution of the species remain obscure. Moreover, detailed information on their ecology and ranging behaviour in pristine and human disturbed habitats is limited.

The ebony leaf monkey (Trachypithecus auratus), also called Javan langur, or “lutung” in Indonesian, is a threatened species from the Colobinae subfamily, endemic to the islands of Java, Bali, and Lombok, Indonesia. This species is considered “Vulnerable” due to a continued population decline. Its habitat has largely disappeared due to logging and land conversion for agriculture.
Our project aims at providing a pioneering study of ant communities in different habitats in both Indoneisian National Parks.
Indonesia is a country harbouring rich biodiversity due to its tropical climate, unique geological history, and archipelagic nature. Unfortunately, the economic pressures result in destruction of natural habitats there, threatening the existence of the biodiversity.
Forest is known as a provider of ecosystem services which can be benefit to the community surrounding it. Protected areas are support system for human livelihood adjacent to them.
Forest edge at park boundary provides biodiversity ecosystem services such as pollination and seed dispersal which maintain sustainable agricultural crop harvesting while preserving the integrity of forest edge.
In response to some of the problems brought to Bali by mass tourism in Bali, the Village Ecotourism Network (Jaringan Ekowisata Desa or JED) was launched by four villages in 2002. JED is owned and run by the communities of the four villages and one environment NGO, the Wisnu Foundation.
The Sumatran Orangutan Education and Awareness Programme (SOEAP) will implement various environmental education and awareness programmes in local schools and communities around orangutan habitat, develop field research and surveys of Sumatran orangutan populations for local youths and university students, and develop and disseminate promotional information and media throughout the communities surr

The OCVI will involve village-wide workgroups and training sessions that work towards developing community-led projects to support sustainable alternative livelihoods. We will implement environmental education and awareness programmes in the target villages as well as throughout surrounding communities.
MEDI is a grassroots programme promoting the protection of the critically endangered Sumatran orangutan (Pongo abelii) and their rainforest ecosystem, working with the community in the Marike region, located adjacent to the Gunung Leuser National Park (GLNP) in North Sumatra, Indonesia.
The coast line of Maumere in Flores Island has had a reduction in mature mangroves due to a Tsunami in 1992 which devastated local areas along with loss of life. JPA-flores (Non-profit NGO) last year (2008) carried out a pilot project in a single location to plant 5400 mangroves with the assistance of local community volunteers.
Several sites of Rafflesia are reportedly exist in West Sumatra. The famous one is Batang Palupuh Nature Reserve for Rafflesia arnoldii R. Br. and Tahura Bung Hatta for R. gadutensis Meijer. Current observation indicated that both sites are not active since very few Raffesia blooming from these sites were observed for several of years.
Surabaya River water is unsuitable for drinking water purpose but still used to supply drinking water for people in Surabaya since there is no alternative source. The river is heavily polluted by more than 330 tons of untreated industrial wastewater disposed everyday. The pollutants accumulate in the estuarine of Surabaya East Coast, the most important source of fishery products in Surabaya.

As Endangered species (IUCN 2008) with ~2,500 adults remaining in >20 habitat fragments, Javan gibbons are endemic to western and central parts of Java, Indonesia, one of the most densely populated islands on earth. Deforestation and habitat degradation are primary threats to the existence of Javan gibbons.
Pressure to perfection and permanence of ecosystem area Gunung Leuser National Park in regency Karo, North Sumatera province because of
1) convert area (is destined for system development of in wrought agriculture and plantation)
2) fragment area (opening walke in forest area)
3) activity of illegal logging.
Leuser forest encroachment is increasing and Human-Tiger conflicts are ongoing. Base on the situation, the training that urgently undertaken are tiger conservation cadre training that aimed to sharpen teacher ability in tiger conservation knowledge and then good environmental governance training that aimed to strengthen village heads capacity in sustainable development leadership.
The Batang Gadis National Park is located in Mandailing Natal District. This area is welknown since mid XIX century for its famous Mandailing Coffee.
Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is the tiger found only in Sumatra island, Indonesia. Sumatran tiger is one of six surviving subspecies of tiger which is classified by IUCN as critically endangered. There are high levels of human-tiger conflict, as well as illegal trade in tiger.
The Pacific leatherback turtle population has declined significantly over the latter half of 20 century and is currently critically endangered. The western Pacific leatherback represents the best remaining prospect for avoiding extinction. Bird’s Head region of Papua, Indonesia represents the last stronghold of leatherback nesting in the western Pacific so it is critical to their recovery.
