|• Insurance population
to provide a genetically and demographically sustainable and behaviourally competent global insurance population for the wild population. Genetically, the global population will be managed with the goal to maintain at least 90% gene diversity for 100 years.
Education materials and expertise from ex situ community will be used in support for awareness raising and to educate locale communities to close to protected and unprotected containing anoas. Many educational resources are already available through: https://www.actionindonesiagsmp.org/resources. EAZA Members are encouraged to take part in the annual Action Indonesia Days to help spread the word.
it is needed to train and build the capacity of ranger staff in situ in husbandry techniques to maximise any potential benefits of rescued anoa for the insurance population or in situ population.
Anoa are a striking species with an interesting biology, are endemic to Indonesia and are included on the list of Indonesia’s 25 national priority taxa threatened with extinction. This can be used to raise awareness among zoo visitors in Indonesia and other countries of human impacts on anoa and wildlife in general to inspire support for conservation activities and action.
Anoa can be used as ambassador species to fundraise for in situ conservation projects that benefit wild anoa and their habitat throughout their range.
