Advancing Shark & Ray Conservation and Management in Indonesia

Vincent Lou

This grant supports Wildlife Conservation Society’s (WCS) efforts to develop and implement a set of integrated policies and plans to enable long-term protections and sustainable management of key shark, ray, and other elasmobranch species in Indonesia. 

WCS will work with the Indonesian government to develop the national policy, regulatory, and institutional frameworks needed for shark and ray conservation and management. By developing and implementing priority site- and species-based conservation programs, WCS will reduce pressure on key shark and ray populations.

 WCS also strives to improve national and local law enforcement capacity to uphold current Indonesian elasmobranch protection regulations.

Through collaborative partnerships, we support innovative projects that protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, while restoring balance to threatened ecosystems and communities. Our work is divided into six main program areas – Wildlands Conservation, Oceans Conservation, Climate Change, Indigenous Rights, Transforming California, and Innovative Solutions.
