The Togean Islands in central Sulawesi maintain very important but highly threatened coral reef and forest habitat, home to exceptional biological diversity and species endemism. Experts estimate that fishing activities with explosives and poisons have destroyed as much as three quarters of Indonesia’s coral reefs. What natural reefs remain in the Togeans are under threat of a similar fate.

Forests on these islands provide habitat to a number of endemic mammals but have been reduced to less than half of their former size by an ever-expanding local population. From a conservation perspective, it is imperative to protect the remaining coral reefs and forests of the Togeans in the immediate term before they are lost permanently.
