This is the first ecological study of the Togean Islands babirusa. This project aims to: 1) Map the distribution of Babyrousa togeanensis. I will conduct a camera-trapping survey across the entire distribution range of this species. Using occupancy modeling, I will generate a species distribution map to identify its core habitat on the islands; 2) Develop a monitoring protocol for the species. I will develop a statistically robust monitoring protocol to assess trends in the occupancy of this species over time; 3) Train national park wardens and local citizen scientists to conduct the monitoring. I will conduct three-day training workshops to teach park wardens and citizen scientists how to apply the monitoring protocol. At the end of the workshops, the participants will receive a monitoring kit including camera traps and a GPS unit to continue the monitoring program which I will supervise remotely.
