Installing Wildlife Camera Traps
A database on Langkawi’s terrestrial vertebrae via camera trapping is currently in development. The photographic documentation of nocturnal wildlife residing around Datai Bay has already been captured via our camera trapping equipment by our team of naturalists. This continuous education on animal behaviour and their habitats enables the development of more effective conservation programmes. At least 23 camera traps will be setup around the island this year and from these, we have loaned five camera traps to support the research efforts of Dr Priscilla Miard (Teaching Mentor at Oxford Brookes University, wildlife researcher and conservation biologist) on arboreal gliding mammals, colugos; a species native to Southeast Asia and specifically Datai Bay, Langkawi. Another five camera traps are also being used by local NGO Rimba for their study on fruit bats on the island.
