Conservation Roadmap for Flying Foxes in Peninsular Malaysia

Flying foxes are giant fruit bats, and are one of the most threatened groups of bats in the world, with their numbers declining sharply due to hunting and habitat loss. They play a critical dual role in forest maintenance and regeneration as pollinators and seed dispersers, and are particularly important for pollinating durian trees. Rimba’s Project Pteropus has been working on flying fox conservation in collaboration with PERHILITAN since 2012, and this collaboration has resulted in a Conservation Roadmap which serves as a guidance document for flying fox conservation in Peninsular Malaysia. We find out more about this from Dr. Sheema Abdul Aziz, the Principal Investigator of Project Pteropus.
