WCS Indonesia Program (WCS-IP)
The Wildlife Conservaton Society – Indonesia Program (WCS-IP) began working in Indonesia in 1965 and established a formal country program in 1991. Using a "muddy boots" method to conservation, we identify critical conservation issues, find sciencebased solutions to these problems, and achieve tangible, on-the-ground success that benefits wildlife and wild places.
With sound data in hand, we work with our partners to achieve conservation including direct interventions for protecting endangered species, creating new approaches to public-private partnerships for conservation, empowering local communities and governments to manage their wildlife resources, affecting national and local regulations, influencing international conservation and natural resource management policies, and assisting in management of protected areas.
