About this book

This is the final report of Action Sampiri 1995-1997, a Cambridge-based expedition which made biological and socio-economic surveys on these islands in north Sulawesi during 1995-1997. Proposals are presented for conservation strategies, with specific management recommendations provided for three sites. This is complemented by a comprehensive assessment of the status of the islands' endemic and globally threatened avifauna, including descriptions of a new species, the Sangihe Shrike-thrush Coluricincla (megarhyncha) sanghirensis. The text, predominantly in English but with certain sections also in Bahasa Indonesia, is well illustrated.
Sangihe and Talaud are perhaps Indonesia's most important islands for bird conservation, and this report provides a much-needed assessment of avian biodiversity status.
