The status, distribution, ecology and conservation of Javan hawk-eagle (Spizaetus Bartelsi, Stresemann, 1924) in south part of West Java, Indonesia
The spectacular Javan Hawk-eagle (Spizaetus bartelsi), locally known as Elang Jawa was declared Indonesia's national bird and symbol of all the country's rare species in 1993. The Javan Hawk-eagle is only found on the island of Java, Indonesia and is one of the world’s least know but most endangered raptors. This project aims to survey regions of West Java where the Javan Hawk-eagle was historically recorded. The team will identify the presence and distribution of the species alongside observations of habitat requirements, ecology and threats. Complementing this research the team will build a local environmental awareness and education programme about the Javan Hawk-eagle.
