Bornean Sunbear and Bearded Pig Research and Conservation Project

Category : southeastasia

Wong Siew Te has setup the Bornean Sunbear and Bearded Pig Research and Conservation Project webpage on behalf of the team conducting research on the two species:

"The Malayan sun bear (Helarctos malayanus) and the bearded pig (Sus barbatus) are sympatric species that live in the tropical rainforests of Borneo and Southeast Asia.

Both species overlap in certain aspects of their food habits and habitat use and fulfill important ecological functions: seed dispersal, seed predation, and seed bed preparation.

Malayan sun bears and bearded pigs are forest-dependent species, thus any human disturbance of their habitat has the power to impact survival. However, the nature and extent of this impact is unknown.

Very little is understood about either species, which increases their vulnerability and makes conservation and management programs nearly impossible to implement."

We look forward to interesting news from this project!
