“It would be difficult for us to evacuate wild animals. However, we are considering laying out a corridor between Mount Merapi and Mount Merbabu that is equipped with camera traps to monitor their movements.”

Pujiati noted that rangers managed to keep track of the national park’s fauna.

“We have managed to monitor various species such as monkeys, deer, jungle cats and pangolins, as well various bird species including [the Javanese] eagle. However, we have yet to find paw marks or other signs of leopards in the national park, even going after deer.”

Mount Merapi is known to be Indonesia’s most active volcano. The mountain has been showing increasing signs of volcanic activity since last March. Mount Merapi’s last major eruption took place in 2018.
