Sustainability Solutions through the Danau Girang Field Centre

Professor Dr Benoît Goossens, Director, Danau Girang Field Centre (DGFC)

Sustainability Solutions through the Danau Girang Field Centre

The Danau Girang Field Centre (DGFC) is a collaborative research and training facility managed by the Sabah Wildlife Department and Cardiff University. Their research aims to help mitigate the loss of Asian biodiversity by understanding the effects of habitat fragmentation on the ecosystem, while encouraging in-situ conservation and engaging with NGOs, stakeholders, and policy-makers alike. From proboscis monkeys and pangolins to the seladang and sunbears, the group are involved in a range of long-term programs on an array of tropical forest species. We speak to Prof Dr Benoît Goossens, the Director of DGFC, about the group's work, including on orangutan and elephant conservation, while also discussing how preserving the remaining forests in the Kinabatangan area is key to protecting all the remaining wildlife there.
