WWF-Malaysia - Camera Trapping Study in Pedu Forest Reserve
This report presents work carried out during the first trip to deploy camera traps in Pedu and Padang Terap forest reserves. This is also the very first-time WWF-Malaysia carried out a camera trapping study within the aforementioned forest reserves. A total of 6 men were involved in the fieldwork from 14th Feb-19th Feb (6 days).
The field team trekked about 35 km to deploy camera traps at 9 locations. Apart from trekking, transportation such as four-wheeled drives and boats were used to access these areas. The field trip was successfully completed without any casualties.

The clear and wide forest trail as seen in the picture above indicates frequent usage of wildlife, hence a good location to deploy camera traps.
