Tangkoko Conservation Education Programme
Tangkoko Conservation Education is a conservation education programme based near the Tangkoko Nature Reserve in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. We develop school interventions and awareness campaigns for the local population for them to protect their local wildlife, and especially crested macaques (Macaca nigra).
Protecting Sulawesi Wildlife
Sulawesi island is part of the Wallacea region, one of the 25 biodiversity hotspots of the world for conservation priorities (Myers et al., 2000). Due to his geographical situation, Sulawesi is of particular interest with respect to species' endemism, especially regarding primates, as it hosts seven macaque species found nowhere else in the world (Riley, 2010). Crested macaques (Macaca nigra) are one of these species.
