Study on sociality and ecology of wild orangutans with high density in primary forest.
Date:2007/11/05 - 2007/12/24
At first I visited Klias river where Dr.
Henry Bernard has researched Proboscis Monkey and exchange views on research plans with him.
Additionally I gave lecture at a workshop "Borneo Species Workshop" hosted by Sabah Wildlife Department and WWF-Malaysia.
From November to December 2007, I have conducted behavioral observation of orangutans.
I followed 10 animals for 160 hours 21 minute in 22 days.
In this time I identified more three orangutans then the number of identified animal increased to 33 individuals.
