Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary Research Event – Tuesday 16th October


An overview of current research in the Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary conducted by the Danau Girang Field Centre, eastern Sabah, Borneo – Tuesday 16th October 7:30 pm

This is a return to a topic we last heard about from Dr Goossens in 2011. During the past ten years, students working at DGFC have helped develop research programmes on several flagship species, including Bornean elephant, sun bear, Sunda clouded leopard, Sunda pangolin, Bornean bearded pig, proboscis monkey, slow loris, and reticulated python.

An array of innovative tools has been used, such as satellite collars, infra-red camera traps, airborne drones, LiDAR, land surveys and population genetics. Dr Goossens, Director of DGFC, will highlight how this work contributes to wildlife conservation.

Start at 7.30pm in Room 0.23 (ground floor) School of Management Building, Cardiff Metropolitan University Llandaff Campus, Western Ave Llandaff Cardiff.
