Survey long-tailed macaque (Macaca fascicularis) performed in Tanjung Puting National Park (TNTP). The survey used to determine the path of long-tailed macaques distance from the riverbank and to be more efficient at the time of the identification of long-tailed macaques in different habitats, weather and different times of the day. The survey was conducted also repeated in the river which has a length 7,4 miles to count the population and determine the diversity of identification at different times. In the final stage, surveys conducted over extended throughout the national park by using the entire path of the river that can be passed (coastline, rivers and streams) which are flowing into the region or TNTP. Based on survey results, done extrapolating the number of groups long-tailed monkeys who live along the river TNTP. Long-tailed macaque is an edge species and are found primarily within 1 km of river bank. Besides, This species is easily found in the afternoon along the river when they returned his kepohon. Based on a broader survey of the, obtained estimates of the number of groups of long-tailed macaques in TNTP ranges 750-850 group, and population size between 13,321-23,100 individual, while the average population density along the river 7,50-13,01 individuals / km. The density of long-tailed macaque is different for each type of watershed and habitat. The results of this study is the first census in TNTP, describe the characteristics of the population that is relatively undisturbed in the woods rivarian, marsh and coastal habitats.
