Collaborative Conservation – Creating Connections to Enhance Conservation Capacity in North Sulawesi, Indonesia

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
A participatory space will be created to learn about North Sulawesi wildlife conservation successes and challenges based on our different programmes (Selamatkan Yaki, Tangkoko Conservation Education, Macaca NIgra Project, Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue and Education Centre). Participant engagement is intended to be maximised through creative hands-on presentation of materials. 
The messages of the intended session are planned to unfold against a bright and vibrant backdrop, a jungle-theme around a tree which will form the centre-point of the setting, a place where examples and exhibition style materials appear.

Our team will be present to present the materials and describe in full the various features of the set, including providing sufficient background information to the accompanied text within the hanging imagery/exhibit panels.

This session will present:
-          Images and exhibit panels (4 portrait panels, size: 1m50 X 1m) of collaborative conservation activities emerging from foliage and hanging from a tree, as well as art work representing cthe majestic yaki (macaques)
-          Accompanying information about each organisation’s activities, key successes and positive outcomes to be revealed by pulling at the images upon investigation.
-          A continuous display of videos (short documentary about the crested macaques) and clips about our different organisations
-          Background music and sounds of Sulawesi animals to aid in the sensory immersion
-          Several quizzes, games and booklets provided by the presenters throughout the day to make the session as interactive as possible with the public 
-          Audio-visual presentation of the traditional “kabasaran” and “maengket” dances, to further set the scene of the local Minahasan socio-cultural conditions.
