A number of observers and wildlife conservation activists in North Sumatra have conducted biodiversity surveys around Lake Toba. According to Chairunas Adha Putra, an observer and wildlife conservation activist in North Sumatra, from monitoring carried out for four months, at least 78 species of birds, mammals and reptiles were found around the Lake Toba area. Some of them are endemic species and animals protected by the Law on the Conservation of Living Natural Resources and Ecosystems (KSDAE).

Let’s explore 3 interesting types of animals around Lake Toba that you can interact with!
