My story

[p][div=text-align: justify;][span=font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; font-size: 9pt;]Selamatkan Yaki is a conservation programme that aims to protect yaki – the Sulawesi crested black macaques and their forest habitat.[/span][/div][span=font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;][div=text-align: justify;][lt]span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"[gt][lt]span style="font-size: 12px;"[gt][lt]br /[gt][/span][lt]/span[gt][/div] [span=font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;][div=text-align: justify;][lt]span style="font-size: 9pt;"[gt]North Sulawesi is home to an incredible diversity of plant and animal species, with one of the highest levels of endemism (species unique to the area) in the world. However, due to hunting, forest loss and the pet trade many of these unique species are under threat. One of the most threatened is the Sulawesi crested black macaque – known locally as yaki. Restricted to small forest fragments in the Northern tip of the island, these monkeys have experienced an estimated population decline of up to 80% in the last 40years, and are now Critically Endangered and in urgent need of protection.[/span][/div][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][/p] [lt]p style="text-align: justify;"[gt][span=font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;]Selamatkan Yaki is a project through the Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust based at Paignton Zoo in the UK, comprising a strong collaboration of partners, with support and cooperation from key stakeholders. By focussing on protected area management, ecotourism, community development, education and awareness-raising we can work together to reduce the threats to the species. By protecting yaki, we also safeguard the livelihoods of many other species, and the people that live alongside them. [/span][/p][lt]p style="text-align: justify;"[gt][span=font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;]Our project is still in its infancy, thus the development and long-term continuation of our conservation activities are dependent on small grants and donor money. Throught your support we will be able to initiate upcoming project addressing our objectives, in order to reduce the threats to this beautiful primate species.[/span][/p][lt]p style="text-align: justify;"[gt][span=font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;][lt]span style="font-size: 12px;"[gt]A donation is quick and simple through this page, and will be very gratefully received. Please accept our most sincere thanks for your support. We hope you have a wonderful day, with a nice warm feeling of doing good.[/span][lt]/span[gt][/p][lt]p style="text-align: justify;"[gt][span=font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;][lt]span style="font-size: 12px;"[gt]Thanks - Terima Kasih[/span][lt]/span[gt][/p][lt]p style="text-align: justify;"[gt][span=font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;][lt]span style="font-size: 12px;"[gt]The Selamatkan Yaki Team[/span][lt]/span[gt][/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/emJdZ6arGOQ?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo]
