Open to the Public
Ongoing deforestation in Southeast Asia is leading to increased fragmentation and the reduction of optimal habitat for the mainland Clouded Leopard (Neofelis nebulosa). Join Dr Cedric Tan as he shares his research on the use of Clouded Leopard habitat on a regional scale across Peninsular Malaysia. He will reveal how the results allow the mapping of predicted Clouded Leopard habitat use across Peninsular Malaysia. This in turn enables the identification of suitable sites and provides valuable information for land use planning and management. In particular, it determines the suitability of forest remnants in supporting populations of Clouded Leopards. It also predicts how this species will respond to increasing threats such as human development and changing landscapes.
