We are a group of scientists who conduct conservation research to produce evidence-based management recommendations that will help decision-makers mitigate threats to biodiversity in Peninsular Malaysia – because we need a jungle out there!

We aim to function as the bridge linking conservation science and conservation practice. Therefore, we differ from other scientific researchers in that we take it a step further to actively bring our results to practitioners and policymakers, in order to ensure that our research actively feeds into practice, directly informing and guiding conservation action on the ground. This sets us apart from academic institutions and other, more traditional NGOs.

Whenever possible, we also make it a point to work on less popular species and habitats – the uncharismatic ecosystems that slip through the cracks and get little attention.
