Not many people have heard of an anoa, banteng or babirusa, but they are some of Indonesias most threatened large mammals! These incredible, unique animals are threatened with extinction as a result of habitat loss and the illegal hunting for consumption and trade.

The Action Indonesia Global Species Management Plans (GSMPs) is an international collaboration of over 50 institutions from three continents, all working together to conserve these three ungulate species, in zoos and in the wild.

How you can help:

Join us on the 11th August to help raise awareness about anoa, banteng and babirusa!

Action Indonesia Day is an annual global awareness raising day bringing attention to these often overlooked, but very special and endangered Indonesian species.

Your support can help us protect these species in the wild, as we understand where they are, how many there are, and how their populations are changing over time.

Over 350 people have already received training to enable them to look after and conserve these incredible species, and your support can make a real difference by empowering more people to protect them in the future.

Every donation makes a difference!
