Thanks to support from Thin Green Line Foundation we have implemented a camera trapping program along the forest edge of the Leuser Ecosystem, North Sumatra. There is very little data available on the wildlife living and using the buffer zone where there is significant human-wildlife conflict. Critically endangered species such as Sumatran tigers, Sumatran elephants, Sunda pangolins as well as Malayan sun bears, serow, porcupines and Muntjac deer can be found here, in addition to a multitude of other bird, reptile, mammal and plant species. We provide employment to a team of locals to monitor the camera traps and trails and upload images. Recently we have had support from Environmental Conservation Consultancy to begin analyzing the data and trying to identify individual tigers. The more we know, the more we can do to help.
