What is a GSMP? 

Global Species Management Plans (GSMPs) are international, collaborative conservation plans focused on the long-term survival of target species. These plans – overseen by the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) - bring together zoos, governments, and conservation organizations to concentrate skills and energy for maximum impact in both zoos (ex-situ) and the field (in-situ). Instead of each regional organization working independently toward their specific conservation goals, GSMPs use a One-Plan approach, which encourages regions to work together as a single, cohesive team. 

​ 

In 2006, the Action Indonesia GSMPs were created to help protect Anoa, Banteng, and Babirusa from extinction. In 2018, the longest running GSMP – Sumatran tiger – joined forces with Action Indonesia to increase reach and collaboration. 

Who we are 

We are the Action Indonesia Global Species Management Plan (GSMP). We are 38 organisations from across Europe, Indonesia, America and Canada, all working together to save some of Indonesia’s most unique and special species. The Action Indonesia GSMP takes a global view of the conservation of Anoa, Babirusa and Banteng. We also work collaboratively with the Sumatran Tiger GSMP. 

Our work focuses on the conservation breeding of these species in zoos, educating the public about how we can all help save them and on supporting conservation of the species and their habitats in the wild. 

 

 

Why Anoa, Babirusa and Banteng? 

Pigs and cattle don’t always get the same attention as other species of conservation concern, but it is vitally important we work to protect them. Anoa, Babirusa and Banteng are all important parts of the Indonesian ecosystem, as well as having a long-standing role in Indonesian culture. Due primarily to habitat loss and hunting, they are all at risk of extinction, which would be a major ecological and cultural loss for Indonesia and around the world. A global concerted effort is required to ensure the survival of these amazing species and the wild spaces they call home. 

The Action Indonesia GSMPs are working to ensure that these species continue to play their vital role, both ecologically and culturally, for many years to come.
