Selamatkan Yaki is an integrated research, conservation and education programme run through the Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust (UK) and the Pacific Institute for Sustainable Development (Indonesia), focused on protecting the last remaining populations of macaques and mitigating the threats they face. WRS supports Selamatkan Yaki for this project. Experts working in both in situ and ex situ conservation have come together to identify the threats posed to the current population of the Celebes crested macaque within their native range, culminating in the production of a Species Action Plan. By combining a top-down policy level governance approach with local grassroots initiatives, the team hopes to increase a feeling of responsibility and stewardship among the local communities through participation in forest management and village patrols. Villagers will also be trained to become nature reserve field guides. The long-term goal is to establish a system of protected areas that are integrated into landscapes already used by people, to safeguard the habitats of native species.
