The 11th ARRCN International Symposium, Bali, Indonesia
Raptor or Bird of Prey (i.e. Eagle, Hawk, Falcon, Vultures, Owl etc.) is widely recognized as an index species reflecting the soundness of their habitat. This is because they are at the top of food chains, and they are quite sensitive to changes in ecosystems and vulnerable to pollutants in environment. Protection of healthy ecosystems, as well as of environment indispensable for Raptors consequently leads to conservation of biodiversity and Survival of Humans.
The first Asian Raptor Research and Conservation (ARRC) International Symposia was held in 1998 with the participation of raptor researchers and conservationists throughout Asia in Shiga Prefecture, Japan. At the symposium, the Asian Raptor Research and Conservation Network (ARRCN) was established in order to promote research and conservation of raptors in Asia. As per September 2017, the ARRCN membership comprises of 260 raptor researchers and 5 organizations from 33 countries across the globe, including from Indonesia.
The objectives of ARRCN are to exchange information concerning raptors among its member, including research methodology, techniques for habitat restoration, care for injured raptors, etc; to compile a database on raptors, including their distribution, population, habitat, ecology, breeding and all other aspects important to their conservation, especially on the status of native Asian raptors. The ARRCN also coordinate the research activities on migratory species, as well as common and widespread raptor species in Asia.
The 11th Asian Raptor Research and Conservation Network International Symposia aims to exchange information concerning raptors, including research methodology, techniques for habitat restoration, care for injured raptors, etc. It is also aim to compile database on raptors, especially on the status of native Asian raptors.
The results of this Symposia will provide significant information to establish the Asian conservation strategy for Raptors which leads into conservation of raptors and their habitat throughout Asian countries in particular, as well as for raptor and its habitat conservation strategy across the globe.
