The Javan slow loris project, Gunung Gede Pangrango national park—Indonesia

Jarot Arisona

The Javan slow loris is the only nocturnal prosimian living in Java and listed as data deficient (IUCN Global red-list 2003). Great deforestation in Java has threatened many primate species. Since there’s inadequate information about this species, there haven’t conservation strategies being developed. This project will be the first ground survey carried out in GGPNP. Line transect, spotlighting, scanning and GPS mapping will be adopted on the work. This project is urgently needed to initiate the Javan slow loris conservation program and further research in other location in Java. A public awareness program will also accompany the survey in parallel.
