Report on orangutan nest recce survey in upper reaches of Katibas river
We are happy to present the report on our orangutan nest surveys. Here is a short summary:
- About 90% of the viable orang-utan populations are found within the forests of Batang Ai National Park and Lanjak-Entimau Wildlife Sanctuary, and the remaining populations are believed to occupy forests adjacent to the protected areas.
- This study was carried out along the upper reaches of Katibas river, and was focused in Chemanong and Pasin buffer strip.
- The surveys were conducted in areas where orang-utan were historically found or where residents have reported recent orang-utan presence. In total, seven nests were recorded and all nests were found in Pasin buffer strip.
- We will conduct orang-utan population study in Pasin buffer strip next using the Marked Nest Count method.
