The rapid growth of population In Indonesia has caused extensive conversion of highly diverse natural forests into single species plantations. Most production forest and protection forest which, according to national law, are managed by local government have been extensively damaged. Relatively guarded conservation forest is the last resort for biodiversity conservation. However, lacking conservation ethic, many local government officials and rural community who have no access to this nationally managed forest area often see conservation forest as a hindrance to the economic development. Although in situ and ex situ conservation areas have been established since colonial era, the ethical foundation of conservation, however, has never been widely discussed among general public. Conservation is perceived as the aspiration of the elite group in society. Some government officials and general public sometimes see conservation values as western ones imposed upon us. Many regents and governors are proposing to the Ministry of Forestry for the conversion of conservation forest into other land use types. In many places, illegal conversion of many conservation forests has occurred. Unless an ethical foundation of conservation is built, it is only a matter of time that even conservation forest will finally succumb to the public and local government pressure for conversion into other land use types. It is, therefore, essential that conservation workers in Indonesia develop conservation ethic suitable for Indonesian society. Religious and traditional teachings must be considered in developing this ethic. Scientists, religious, tribal and political leaders, journalists as well as celebrities must be involved in formulating and socializing conservation ethics.
