Danielle Kreb

Danielle Kreb obtained a doctoral decree in 2004 t the Institute of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics, Science Faculty of the University of Amsterdam, for her thesis on the conservation and social ecology of freshwater and coastal Irrawaddy dolphins in Indonesia. Since then she has co-founded a local non-profit NGO Yayasan Konservasi RASI and is the leader of a scientific program that focuses on research, conservation and public outreach related to  cetaceans and other endangered aquatic dependent fauna as well as their habitats in Indonesia. A large part of her work focuses on the conservation of the Critically Endangered Mahakam River dolphins and for her efforts she obtained a Conservation Merit Prize from the Society of Marine Mammalogy in 2019. A result of her organization’s conservation efforts was the establishment of a c. 43,000 ha protected area in the river and wetlands where dolphins and fishermen can co-exist as well as a c. 160,000 ha buffer zone of an essential ecosystem area of peat swamp (and rain)forest to support dolphins’ and people’s fish resources and clean water supply. In addition, she performed coastal cetacean research  and identified 25 cetacean species along the East Kalimantan coast which sighting locations or ranges were incorporated in provincial spatial outline and management maps. Furthermore, she is part of a team of trainers to increase capacity of organizations and individuals for handling of stranded marine mammals.  Since 2016,  she is a honorary lecturer at the Fisheries Faculty of Mulawarman University in Samarinda and is teaching  graduate and M.Sc students on the identification and conservation of marine biodiversity and habitats.
