Establishing Wildlife Corridors
Langkawi’s great loss of its natural wildlands has resulted in fragmented zones that threaten the existence of wildlife. To mitigate this effect, wildlife corridors are created through replanting canopy trees (or shade trees which are huge trees with thick canopies or foliage coverings). Planted on either side of the road, the matured trees that connect can then facilitate a safe crossing over and above the road. Over 30 trees have already been planted on Jalan Teluk Datai to create these corridors. In addition, cautionary road signs have been placed in strategic areas to lower the incidence of roadkill caused by speeding vehicles.
