Save the black crested macaques in their last natural habitat

Bitung, Indonesia

We firmly believe that animal welfare can only be achieved by protecting the natural habitat and only together with the local population. Therefore it is important for us to closely interweave nature and animal protection with education and research.

 The Macaca Nigra Project is thus fundamental at 3 levels: 
1/ scientific research to increase knowledge about the macaques and their environment, 
2/ education to empower local scientists and citizens to manage their own environmental and science programmes, and 
3/ conservation to empower local populations and help them protect their environment while providing sustainable livelihood through eco-tourism, expert fauna-flora guiding, nature ranger activities and sustainable economic activities.
