Wakatobi

Wakatobi

Wakatobi was established as National Park in 1996. The National Park includes the islands of Wangi-Wangi, Kaledupa, Tomia and Binongko and covers a total area of 1.39 million ha. In terms of diversity of marine life, scale, and reef condition, Wakatobi ranks as one of the highest priorities for marine conservation in Indonesia. It is also a logical centerpiece for a network of mutually-replenishing MPAs along the southeastern coast of Sulawesi.

Since late 2002, WWF has been collaborating in a unique partnership with The Nature Conservancy to assist the Wakatobi National Park authority to improve their management plan, zoning, and implementation of park management. This partnership will help Wakatobi National Park implement effective management strategies informed by the best science and local socio-economic realities. This will include the development of a collaborative management structure, short and long term financing plans, alternative livelihoods, and management modules such as outreach and awareness, monitoring, surveillance and park zoning.
