Abstract

Jatibarang Dam construction started in 2010 to prevent flooding in central Java, Indonesia. The associated land clearing had significantly affected the ecosystem and degraded the habitat of 248 Macaca fascicularis (Mf). Number of individual and the change of troops data were obtained through seven until ten days-long follows/year and then analyzed using google earth software. The location of sleeping and food areas were recorded by GPS and mapped. Macaca fascicularis have lost more than 80% of their habitat including feeding area. Number of individual in 2010 were 201 in 2 troops. In 2015, the troops increased to four. Daily range of groups varied and density of Macaca fascicularis was 41.69 individuals ha-1. Conservation activities are listed for consideration in the paper as well.
