Orang-utans and Gibbons Compared – Implications of Differences in Feeding and Behavioural Ecology for Conservation

We 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 Conservation

This 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.

Susan Cheyne

Orang-utans and Gibbons Compared: Implications of Differences in Feeding and Behavioural Ecology for Conservation

The Orangutan Tropical Peatland Project – working to protect the Sabangau peat-swamp forest and biodiversity since 1999.

Establishments of Plant Species Diversity Following 2010 Catastrophic Eruption of Mt Merapi, Java Indonesia: Implication for Conservation and Restoration

Most 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.

Sutomo Sutomo

Fragmentation, Plant Invasion and Native Species Conservation in Tropical Forest Landscape of Mt. Merapi

Mt. 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.

Sutomo Sutomo

Conservation of Tropical Savanna Ecosystem through Better Understanding of Invasive Alien Species

The aim of the project is to contribute in preventing extinction of tropical savanna ecosystem in the largest cover of savanna in Java Island by extensive fieldwork and environmental campaign.

Inventory and Diversity Assessment of the Herpetofauna of Gunung Leuser National Park, Sumatra

Situated on the northern tip of Sumatra, the Leuser Ecosystem is an area of global importance to the conservation of biodiversity. Within this ecosystem lies Gunung Leuser National Park (GLNP), known for its high diversity in birds and mammals. However we know surprisingly little about its herpetofauna; to better estimate species diversity we propose to carry out a herpetofaunal inventory in GLNP.

Valentinus Heri

Development of Forest Honey for Wetlands Conservation and Community Income Generation in Danau Sentarum National Park, West Kalimantan

This 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.

Victor Wodi

Tangkoko Conservation Education, Conservation Education Programme around the Tangkoko-Duasudara-Batuangus Nature Reserves in North Sulawesi, Indonesia

This 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, Sumatra

This 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.

William Marthy
