The Bornean Carnivore Programme is a conservation and research effort which studies the ecology and conservation of Bornean Carnivores such as Clouded Leopard and Malay civet. Borneo, the third-largest island in the world, is home to more endemic carnivores than any other island except Madagascar. About half of them are threatened with extinction thanks to habitat destruction and fragmentation resulting from logging, illegal hunting, and fires.
The planet’s human population increases by more than 200,000 people every day. At the same time, global consumption and inequality are rising. As a result, our planetary footprint is unsustainable, with ever more severe and intensifying pressure on finite natural resources throughout the world. The resulting environmental degradation, biodiversity loss and climate change destroys nature and impacts human well-being. The mission of the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU) is to achieve practical solutions to conservation problems through original scientific research. Our research is used worldwide to advise environmental policy-makers. The need for our efforts is greater than ever.
