Sumatra’s Kampar Peninsula is the largest remaining peat swamp forest in Riau Province. This landscape is home to at least 492 species, including protected and threatened wildlife such as the Sumatran tiger, Sunda pangolin, sun bear, false gharial, several hornbill species and dipterocarp and ramin trees. FFI conducted a biodiversity assessment in 2014 – 2015 and has also developed a management and monitoring plan of high conservation value areas to support conservation management.
Pangolins are the only mammals to be covered with large, protective scales. Sadly, this does not keep them safe from poachers - they are now thought to be one of the world's most trafficked animals.
