The Orangutan population is still shrinking rapidly, despite claims from the Indonesian government that things are looking for better red apes. In the journal Current biology, A group of scientists, including German Center for Integrative Biodiversity Maria Woit and Max Planck Institute of Evolutionary Anthropology, are using critical methods that influence management assessment. Researchers have requested scientifically effective measures to ensure that wildlife is monitored on trusted numbers.
According to the report released by the Indonesian government, the population grew from more than 10% by 2015 to 2017. These figures criticize the article published in the article Current biology. Writer Eric Mejadar, director of Brunei Futus' director Brunei Futus, at Brunei University's Brilliance Center and Brunei Futus Director, Eric Mejadar explains: "These numbers are strongly different from other recent publications on the status of the anthropological status and trends.
According to the authors, the number of Bornane orangututans in the last 10 years has been reduced by at least 25%, which is the loss of more than 100,000 people since 1999. Sumatran orangutans and recently tapped ananganadu in more than 60 of their forest habitats in 1985 and 2007 and their population is estimated to be 11-27% by 2020.
Scientists reaffirmed that the latest scientific data shows how to survive three orangutan species to maintain tension and murder. All "critically endangered" are in the IUCN Red List.
How can there be any discrepancy in what the Government and independent scientists have published as the Orangutan Conservation status? The authors of the article offer a few suggestions:
Government monitoring methods are oriented on nine sample populations. These populations are Bornane and Sumatran's orangutan range of 5%, while the zero percentage of the tapular orangutan range. All monitoring areas are within the protected areas, while the majority of the antagonists are protected by non-protected land such as oil palm plantations, private gardens, community lands and timber concessions. Habitat conditions and threats are different from this scale and thus, trends of population identified in protected areas can not be all three types of status. The growth of the government is also quite unlikely that reproductive rates and ongoing killings in many populations are known.
Maria Vogit, Head of Idiv Research Center, and Max Planck's Evolutionary Anthropology Institute highlight the need for cooperation and exchange of data sharing between scientists and Indonesian governments: "It seems that the government does not always know the conservation science published recently," Voigt notes. "Both sides should increase their involvement."
According to Voi, cooperation between the government and non-governmental organizations and scientists is particularly important to develop a new action plan for the conservation of Orangutan from 2018 to 2027. "It is critical to ensure that the best data and methods that determine which conservation strategies are used and where," Voigt explains. "Types of possible conservation strategies such as forest protection, law enforcement, education, community involvement or rescue and rehabilitation of orangutans depend on local oriented trends, survival indicators and pressure.
"I'm optimistic," says Eric Mejadar, the first author. "I still believe that together with science, policy, farming and species management you can offer to save the Orangatien and avoid the extinction of wildlife."
And there is hope that this will help the remaining orangutans. For example, a new moratorium of oil palm licenses by Indonesian President Jokku is a real opportunity to save over 10,000 anangu- ments, which are currently in accordance with the territories assigned to the oil palm by providing them with a permanent forest protection status.
However, this requires a change of conservation thinking. "We have to learn how to manage and protect those populations that are formally outside the protected areas," says Maria Woig. "The improvement of the status of three orangutan species will only be achieved only with the real cooperation and involvement of all parties with share of these non-protected land: agriculture, local communities and local governments."
Biodiversity Monitoring in Germany
Biodiversity monitoring has also become in Germany – the most recent since debate debates in the year 2017, when entomologists reported dramatic reductions in flying insect biomass ("Krefeldier Studio"). As a result, the federal government of Germany concluded that in 2018 he established the scientific biodiversity monitoring center of its coalition agreement. Researchers have requested scientific methods to monitor biodiversity. "Development of biodiversity monitoring science is developing rapidly," said the Director of Idiot and Professor of Lecture University. "New statistical methods, new sensor based data acquisition techniques and large data analysis facilitate high quality information on biodiversity trends that require urgent need for conservation measures based on biodiversity crisis.
