INDONESIA

Indonesia is home to some of the most endangered animals on the entire planet, including incredible species such as the Sun Bear, Sumatran and Bornean Orangutans, Sumatran Tigers, and Sumatran and Javan Rhinos.

 

OUR PROGRESS:

In Kalimantan, our team deployed wpsWatch effectively dismantling a corrupt security force, capturing illegal loggers, fisherman, and trespassers.  In nearby Ujung Kulon, our team is assisting in tech for the capture of some of the last remaining Javan Rhino for their eventual species rehabilitation.  And in the broader Leuser Ecosystem, our technology is capturing census information to aid in the development of strategic conservation action plans.

FIELD RESEARCH CENTER

The Leuser ecosystem of Sumatra, Indonesia is a biodiversity hot spot under enormous threat from deforestation and poaching. WPS is partnering with the NGO Forum Konservasi Leuser (FKL) to protect the critically endangered Sumatran Rhino from habitat destruction and poaching and to monitor populations for successful breeding.

WPS has rebuilt a research camp in Leuser, which will serve as a base of operations and bring more scientific studies of the endangered wildlife, including orangutans, tigers, tapirs, elephants, and sun bears.

WPS also funds rhino protection units (RPUs) to patrol the area and prevent wildlife crime by dismantling snares and traps which are used to poach wildlife. Field cameras further assist the RPUs by providing greater insight in to the activities occurring in the area.
