WHAT WE DO
The partners of the Action Indonesia GSMPs collaborate for the conservation of three threatened
Indonesian taxa; anoa (Bubalus depressicornis and B. quarlesi), banteng (Bos javanicus) and babirusa (Babyrousa sp.; three species).
The Action Indonesia GSMPs use the One Plan Approach to combine the skills, resources and expertise of the global zoo community and in situ practitioners. We are also working closely with the Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris ssp. Sumatrae) GSMP to align our activities where possible.
We have four main goals. These are:
1. To reach a demographically and genetically healthy global ex situ population
2. To raise awareness among zoo visitors
3. To use zoo expertise to help in situ conservation
4. To prioritise and support in situ projects
To achieve our aims, Action Indonesia GSMPs focus on zoos and projects in Indonesia, which is the home of the threatened GSMP species.
