Featured speaker: Marc Ancrenaz, DVM, Ph.D., Co-Founder, HUTAN and Director, Kinabatangan Orang-utan Conservation Programme

Kinabatangan in Malaysian Borneo is a hotspot for biodiversity but one that is threatened by rapid development. The French NGO, HUTAN, initiated the Kinabatangan Orang-utan Conservation Programme (KOCP) 20 years ago. Its goal is to identify ways for wildlife and people to cohabit peacefully in the same environment. OrangOver the years, the KOCP community-based conservation approach has faced many challenges, but it also has experienced major successes that give hope for the long-term survival of wild orangutans, elephants, and other species.

 

HUTAN and Community-Based Conservation, is a Conservation Conversation presentation of The Academy of Science – St. Louis and the Saint Louis Zoo.
