This approach is quite different from existing conservation actions, which are site based and fragmented. Research was conducted since December 2009 until February 2010 in GGPNP, Telaga Warna NR and it’s surrounding forested areas. Aims of this study are : 1) to identify stakeholder related to Javan Hawk-Eagle conservation, 2) to know the gaps in Javan Hawk-Eagle and it’s habitat conservation (gap between group of stakeholder within conservation/protected area and outside area, gap normative performance and implemented performance, also gap performance among stakeholder within conservation/protected area, 3) to define criterias and indicators in Javan Hawk-Eagle conservation, 4) to give opinion to solve the gap problem in Javan Hawk-Eagle and it’s habitat conservation for decision maker. Primary data were collected through snowball method. Secondary data collected through reference study. Analysis conducted by spatial analysis, stakeholder identification and analysis, content analysis and gap analysis. Research results recognized two conservation management approaches : 1) species level, and 2) habitat level. These approaches will effectively conserve the existing fragmented and less protected forest blocks as well as boost the participation and synergism of many stakeholders. Further, by using this approach, a gap in conservation management among local conservation agencies will also be discussed for the benefit of the hawk-eagle’s conservation in particular and for biodiversity in general.
