About this book

The basic goal of the volume is to compile the most up to date research on the effect of ecotourism on Indonesia's primates. The tremendous diversity of primates in Indonesia, in conjunction with the conservation issues facing the primates of this region, have created a crisis whereby many of Indonesia's primates are threatened with extinction. Conservationists have developed the concept of "sustainable ecotourism" to fund conservation activities. National parks agencies worldwide receive as much as 84% of their funding from ecotourism. While ecotourism funds the majority of conservation activities, there have been very few studies that explore the effects of ecotourism on the habitat and species that they are designed to protect. It is the burgeoning use of "ecotourism" throughout Indonesia that has created a need for The Ecotourism of Indonesia's Primates where the successes and pitfalls at various sites can be identified and compared.

Biography

Dr Sharon Gursky has been studying wild tarsiers in Indonesia since. Her research questions are quite diverse and include parental care patterns, the ecological and social factors leading to gregarious behaviour, predation and the function of mobbing behaviour, the influence of moonlight as well as the effects of tourism on the behaviour of the tarsiers and the function of these ultrasonic vocalizations.  Her current work is looking at the effect of artificial light on nocturnal primates.  Dr Gursky is current a Professor of Anthropology at Texas A&M University.

Dr Jatna Supriatna received his PhD from the University of New Mexico.  He is presently the Regional Vice President and Executive Director for the Indonesian branch of Conservation International.  He is also the President of the Southeast Asian Primatologists Association, Coordinator of the Southeast Primate Specialists Group- Species Survival Commission.  For over 10 years he has been the founder and editor of the journal Tropical Biodiversity and is now the editor for the journal Asian Primates.

Dr Angela Achorn graduated from Rhode Island College in 2016 with a B.A. in Anthropology and a minor in Environmental Studies. She earned her M.A. (2018) and her PhD (2022) in Anthropology from Texas A&M University. Angela is a biological anthropologist who explores questions related to cooperation and sociality, sexual selection (and social selection more broadly), cognition, and health in primates. As a graduate student, Angela travelled to Indonesia on a 2019-2020 Fulbright Fellowship to study Sulawesi crested macaques, a Critically Endangered primate species endemic to Sulawesi, Indonesia. When forced to return to the U.S. due to the global pandemic, Angela began studying meat sharing in savanna chimpanzees for her dissertation. She is now a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Texas MD Anderson's Keeling Center for Comparative Medicine and Research.
