Tangkoko Conservation Education (or TCE), is the conservation education programme of MNP. Created in 2011, it takes place around the Tangkoko nature reserves and other protected forests of North Sulawesi (Mount Klabat and Mount Tumpa). TCE aims at giving the survival of the local biodiversity and its habitat a long-term perspective. To achieve this goal, we develop education and conservation activities for the local population (especially school interventions for young people), in order to increase their knowledge and awareness towards the crested macaques and the local biodiversity.
