About This Project

Indonesia, specifically Wallacea (e.g. Sulawesi and surrounding islands), is teeming with species not found anywhere else on earth. Our unique study species are the anoa ("dwarf buffalo") and babirusa ("deer-pig") and sadly both populations are in trouble. We aim to analyse the DNA from past and present individuals using cutting-edge ancient DNA techniques. This window into the past will help us to understand how populations adapt and aid the continued existence of these enigmatic species.
