Marike Ecotourism Development Initiative (MEDI)The aim of the project is to build the capacity of the Marike community to develop an effective and ethical interpretive ecotourism venture, in order to support and promote the conservation of Sumatran orangutans and their forest home.
Mangrove Planting InitiativeMangrove planting to re-establish an eco environment for fish spawning and other marine life whilst providing long term improvements for local village inhabitants in the fishing industry and improving sea protection.
Assessment of Conservation Status of Rafflesia in West SumatraThe aims of the project are: 1) assessing the conservation status of Rafflesia populations in West Sumatra, 2) monitoring the existence of Rafflesia species, and 3) proposing management plant for conservation of Rafflesia species.
Vermicomposting of Domestic Waste Training to Local Community in Surabaya River, East Java, IndonesiaThe water quality of the Surabaya River, in East Java, Indonesia, is very poor because of human pollution. This project seeks to encourage local people to make vermicompost from their own waste and thereby improve their local environment.
Environmental Education for Children to Promote Sustainable River Management in East Java, IndonesiaThis project will raise awareness of the problems of water pollution and in particular its effect on children in the Surabaya River region.

Local Community Empowerment on Tiger and its Conservation in Southeast Aceh, IndonesiaThe aim of project is to ensure the long term participative protection of Sumatran tiger and its habitat within Southeast Aceh communities at Leuser National Park, Aceh Province, Indonesia.
Local Community Empowerment on Tiger and Its Habitat in Batang Gadis National Park, IndonesiaThe project aim is to ensure the long participative conservation of Sumatran tiger and its habitat in Batang Gadis National Park communities, North Sumatra Province,Indonesia. The illegal logging and some encroachments in Batang Gadis National Park areas are increasing, this is main problem of Sumatran tiger habitat conservation. The training that to be importantly undertaken are tiger conservation cadre training and then good environmental governance training. The both trainings are aimed to that sharpen local teacher capacity in tiger conservation knowledge and Village heads capacity in sustainable development leadership.
Support for Sumatran Tiger Protection In and Around Batang Gadis National ParkThis project is aimed to establish the effective community based forest & sumatran tiger protection in and around Batang Gadis National Park. We will create 6 community forest patrol (CFP) groups (1group for 1 resort). The CFP members will be selected from local peoples. The community forest & tiger patrol activity will regularly deploy under supervision of National Park ranger including patrol training, patrolling for illegal logging &tiger presences, destroy snare trap. Beside it, we also develop a wildlife response unit as a roving team in order to assist local communities who live around affected areas of human-tiger conflicts.
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.
Evaluating the Ecological and Cultural Services Provided by Tropical Forest Ecosystems: Freshwater Fish and the Use of Fish Ponds as a Sustainable Livelihood Source in Central Kalimantan, IndonesiaThe project aims are: 1) to assess the fish communities in the forest and river; 2) assess the importance of fish and fishing to the local communities and 3) to evaluate the use of fish ponds as a sustainable livelihood source.
The Crested Black Macaque, IndonesiaStudy on Male Sulawesi Crested Black Macaque Dominance Style at Tangkoko-Batuangus Nature Reserve, North Sulawesi, Indonesia
Civet Coffee Saves Biodiversity: Obtaining Civet’s Population Data toward Sustainable Coffee Production in Petungkriono Forest, IndonesiaProvide population data of Palm Civet along with quantity of Civet coffee that can be harvested. And encourage people to manage their forest better for improving their livelihood.

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.
