Learn from Nature, act for Nature

Children participating in learning activities and role play about nature


Tangkoko Conservation Education is a conservation education programme based near the Tangkoko Nature Reserve in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. We develop and implement school-based interventions and awareness campaigns aimed at encouraging the local community to safeguard their local wildlife, with a particular emphasis on the protection of crested macaques (Macaca nigra).


Sulawesi island is part of the Wallacea region, one of the 25 biodiversity hotspots of the world for conservation priorities. Due to his geographical situation, Sulawesi is of particular interest with respect to species' endemism, especially regarding primates. The island hosts seven macaque species, which are found nowhere else in the world. Crested macaques (Macaca nigra) are one of these species.
