Kenyir Wildlife Corridor in northeast Malaysia is teeming with wildlife: elephants, gibbons, tigers, tapirs, and even black panthers (melanistic leopards) have been recorded in the 60 kilometer (37 mile) stretch of forest.

A forest with wildlife...imagine that. Funny that it took a study for the government to figure that out. Now keep the poachers OUT. Poach the poachers.

Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Mr. Hance. Kudos to the Terengganu state government for immediately stopping the development projects. Read and noted.

this "corridor" should be preserved. Good that development has been halted. That will need to be enforced.

Malaysia is trashing all their environment and killing their wildlife.
Halt this deveopment permanently with a permanent ban

It's about time that they start treating these animals with respect. They have been here for many years and deserve to be. Thanks Cal

Perhaps the world is starting to wake up to what has been allowed to happen. What happens to the beast will happen to man because all are connected.
