Goal: My overall goal is to shed light on the detailed  habitat use and movements of tigers in the Riau Conservation Landscape, and to contribute new information to aid in the development of wildlife-friendly management practices of plantations and ‘corridors’ which, in the long term, will aid in increasing the Sumatran tiger population.

Objectives:

  1.  Use fine scale movement data to determine if/how tigers use acacia, eucalyptus, palm oil plantations, logging concessions in and how they traverse the landscape protected areas
  2.  Identify whether there is genetic connectivity between tiger populations in Central Sumatra
  3.  Model landscape change to identify current and predict future structural connectivity of the landscape
