Maleo Conservation

Iconic, yet endangered, the maleo bird, Macrocephalon maleo, is a natural treasure. In partnership with local villagers, AlTo works to protect the maleo at three sites in the Tompotika landscape: the Kaumosongi site near the villages of Toweer and Teku; the Panganian site near Pangkalaseang village, and the Libuun site near the village of Taima, where more maleos currently nest than anywhere else in the world.

Working side by side, teams of villagers and AlTo staff guard the nesting ground round the clock, ensuring that adult maleos can lay their eggs in peace, eggs are safe from poaching, and maleo chicks can hatch out undisturbed in their natural environment. AlTo’s approach centers on protecting maleo nesting grounds and forest habitat, but allowing eggs to hatch naturally in place, without hatcheries, incubators, or other human intervention.

Since 2006, when villagers first requested AlTo’s help to prevent the maleo’s extinction, virtually all poaching at protected sites has ceased, opening the way for steady increases in maleo numbers. Though continuing to decline elsewhere in its range, with the cessation of poaching facilitated by the AlTo-villager teams, maleo populations at these protected sites are now recovering; at the Taima-Libuun site, maleo numbers have quadrupled since the project began. At the same time, AlTo works with government and villagers to protect essential forest habitat that connects and sustains maleos on and off the nesting grounds.
