What is PROFAUNA Indonesia?

PROFAUNA Indonesia is an independent, non-profit organization engaged in the protection of forests and wildlife. PROFAUNA Indonesia was originally founded in 1994 in the city of Malang, East Java in Indonesia, under the local name Konservasi Satwa Bagi Kehidupan (Wildlife Conservation for Life) which later has developed throughout Indonesia and overseas.

There are four main issues currently addressed by PROFAUNA Indonesia: wildlife hunting/poaching, wildlife trade, sea turtle conservation, and social forestry working together with local communities.

PROFAUNA's activities are non-political, non-profit and non-violent.

PROFAUNA is an active and dynamic organisation and takes direct action in the field to protect Indonesian wildlife and their habitats

PROFAUNA was co-founded by two environmental activists: Rosek nursahid and Made Astuti because they were concerned about the rampant trade of the endangered species in Indonesia. 

PROFAUNA's PRINCIPLES:

PROFAUNA believes all wildlife species has values to the nature preservation, therefor every species of wildlife should be allowed to live freely in the wild or the nature, and humans are responsible to make it happen.

As for PROFAUNA's principle in the forest protection, we believe that forest preservation will be more effective if it involves the active participation of local communities. Forests are not just woods, but there is also unique and varied wildlife species. Forests also have ecological and social functions.

THE WILDLIFE SPECIES THAT ARE CURRENTLY PRIORITISED BY PROFAUNA:

PROFAUNA only works on wildlife issues. We do not work on livestock, domestic animals or pets such as dogs or cats. The wildlife that are currently prioritized by PROFAUNA Indonesia are sea turtles, primates and hornbills
