PROTECTING THE MALAYAN TIGER
About the Project
Bumi Alam intends to start by managing a defined conservation area located at the fringe of Taman Negara known as the Dungun Forest Complex which has documented tiger sightings.
Taman Negara is the only park in Southeast Asia where camera-trapping surveys conducted more than 10 years apart have confirmed that biodiversity has been maintained. • It stretches from Belum to Terengganu across the central forest spine • Taman Negara plays a major role as a regional hotspot, with the potential to become a crucial stronghold for Asia’s most threatened mammal species, including Malayan tiger, Indochinese leopard, dhole, Asian elephant, Malayan tapir, and Malayan pangolin. • The Dungun Timber Complex (DTC) adjoins the Taman Negara and for various reasons is an ideal location.
