Species

The species that we are most interested in is the tiger. Other species will also be recorded because they furnish important information regarding the quality of habitat for tigers, and some of them are very threatened.

Besides the tiger, species of interest and with chance of being recorded are the orangutan (Pongo abelii), elephant (Elephas maximus), Malayan tapir (Tapirus indicus), bearded pig (Sus oi), wild pig (Sus scrofa), barking deer (Muntiacus muntjak), sambar (Cervus unicolor), Malayan sun bear (Helarctos malayanus), and the clouded leopard (Neofelis diardi) among others.

Study area

The study area is within the limits of the Tesso-Nilo, idealized by WWF as a series of connected reserves, specially designed for the protection of tigers and elephants: within it, the expedition aims to use Bukit Tigapuluh National Park as headquarters, which extends itself through two provinces, Riau and Jambi.
