Iwan Hunowu & Alfons Patandung

Iwan Hunowu began his professional conservation career with the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Indonesia Program (WCS-IP) in 1999. Over the years, his passion and ornithological skills brought him to lead biodiversity surveys, and manage a conservation project for the remarkable Endangered maleo (Macrocephalon maleo), a bird which buries its eggs under up to a meter of sand. Iwan is now the Sulawesi Program Manager, heading up WCS-IP’s work across the whole of the island.

Alfons Patandung is the Biodiversity Conservation Coordinator at the Wildlife Conservation Society's Indonesia Program (WCS-IP). He started working at WCS in 2013 and focuses on bird ecology, camera trap surveys and wildlife data analysis, particularly on Sulawesi.
