The Tomistoma Task Force, within the IUCN/SSC Crocodile Specialist Group, is dedicated to:
- quantifying the status of Tomistoma schlegelii in the wild
- identifying the threats to which they are exposed
- promoting appropriate actions in cooperation with range states that may achieve sustainable conservation benefits for the species.
Tomistoma Task Force was established at the 16th Working Meeting of the IUCN-SSC Crocodile Specialist Group in Gainesville (Florida, 7-10 October 2003).
It was agreed that people outside the range states needed to play a much more active role in cooperating with and assisting range states to conserve Tomistoma — assistance with surveys, training, education, research, conservation action and both financial and human resources.
