A very poor
conservation framework in the Republic of Indonesia
Conservation steps taken in Indonesia to-date:
Dept, 1982): proved to be a total failure.
A national emblem, the Javan Eagle still stands among the most sought after species!
Impoverished locals cannot possibly be expected to give up traditional trapping for the very steady demand in spectacular birds on local markets.
Sweeping is ineffective: dramatically underpaid Indonesian Rangers regard wildlife as a mere commodity and consistently ransom traders.
(Dept of Forestry and International NGO’s), mostly living on maps. Coffee plantations rapidly replace mountain
Shrinking conservation areas currently overlapping the species range do not provide sufficient habitat and food resources for the survival of breeding pairs.
Scattered network: gene flow now impossible between isolated populations already doomed to in-breeding!
(International NGO’s), often very costly, limited accuracy and so far totally ineffective in
regard of active preservation of wild populations.
only true and productive effort to actually save young Raptors and rear them
was initiated in 1999 by the Biak
Falconry and Raptors Conservation Center.
