Yayasan Konservasi Alam Nusantara (YKAN) is a non-profit organization which was established in Indonesia in 2014.
With the mission to protect lands and waters on which all life depends, YKAN provides innovative solutions for realizing harmony between nature and humans, through effective management, non-confrontational approaches, and building collaborative partnerships with all stakeholders for a sustainable Indonesia.
YKAN opens opportunities for careers and works in various programs developed for nature conservation in Indonesia.
You will find a variety of experiences and opportunities to work with scientists and individuals dedicated to protecting and safeguarding nature and joining partners and the communities where we work.
We uphold the core values that are part of the way our organization works as follows:
Integrity Beyond Reproach
We will meet the highest ethical and professional standards in all of our organizational endeavors, and, in doing so, we hold ourselves accountable to our mission and the public.
Respect for People, Communities, and Cultures
Enduring conservation success depends on the active involvement of people and partners whose lives and livelihoods are linked to the natural systems we seek to conserve. We respect all and forge relationships based on mutual benefit and trust.
Commitment to Diversity
We recognize that conservation is best advanced by the leadership and contributions of people of widely diverse backgrounds, experiences, and identities. We will recruit and develop staff to create a diverse, inclusive, and equitable organization.
Our strength and vitality lie in being one organization working together in local places and across borders to achieve our global mission. We value the collective and collaborative efforts that are so essential to our success.
Tangible Lasting Results
We use the best available science, a creative spirit, and a non-confrontational approach to craft innovative solutions to complex conservation problems at scales that matter and in ways that will endure.
