Results:
Highlights of our 17 year history include:
- Supporting women weavers in West Kalimantan to form the JMM Cooperative, with our partners Kobus Foundation and Yayasan Swadaya Dian Khatulistiwa (YSDK). The cooperative, whose name translates to “weavers go independent”, has over 930 members and provides an income for marginalized, Dayak women through the sales of traditional weaving.

- Discovering new groups of globally threatened primate species: Francois’ Langur and Tonkin Snub-nosed Monkey in Vietnam. The PRCF is currently setting up innovative, community-based conservation activities aiming to protect these primates while creating awareness and conservation-based economic opportunities for the surrounding communities.

- Placing local people on Protected Area Management Boards in Vietnam, an unprecedented act in this country. Fair representation now exists on the board from all of the communities living within and in the immediate surroundings of the protected area.

- Identifying the second most important site, globally, for the critically endangered White-shouldered Ibis. Information about this rare, enigmatic bird was limited, making conservation planning for the species difficult. By supporting the most significant ibis census in Cambodia, led by local nationals, targeted activities can be implemented towards its protection.

- Discovering a new primate species to science: the Burmese Snub-nosed Monkey, with our partners Biodiversity and Nature Conservation Association (BANCA) and Fauna & Flora International (FFI).
