Ika Yuni Agustin

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Forestry from Gadjah Mada University, Indonesia. During my time at university, I became
particularly interested in the conservation of primates and since graduating, have contributed to several primate research and conservation projects. In 2009, I joined with friends to establish a local youth community group on Sumbawa island focused on marine conservation. Since then, I have come to increasingly
appreciate the importance, to conservation, of understanding people and the perception that they hold related to nature and its conservation. From 2014 to 2016, I conducted survey work to investigate social and ecological factors related with human-tiger coexistence amongst communities living near Kerinci Seblat National Park, Sumatra, Indonesia, conducted in partnership with the Durrell Institute for Conservation and Ecology (DICE) and Fauna and Flora International. More recently, I joined the ConHuB team as a Research Assistant where I collect data to populate multiple models of human behaviour from people who live around Gunung Leuser National Park, Sumatra,
