Welcome

Recognizing the degree of threat and lack of information for Bornean carnivores, the 1st Borneo Carnivore Symposium was initiated with the intention to synthesize and discuss our current state of knowledge on the status and conservation needs of this important group of Bornean mammals. The event will bring together representatives from the scientific, political and business communities to devise conservation strategies that are efficient, feasible and accepted by the society. Thus, we expect the symposium to provide the foundation from which feasible regional action strategies and plans will be developed to enhance the conservation of carnivores throughout the island.
