The Central Forest Spine Master Plan
Dr. Ahimsa Campos-Arceiz, Professor and Principal Investigator, Management and Ecology of Malaysian Elephants | Ange Tan, Project Coordinator, Wild Asia
The Central Forest Spine (CFS) Master Plan for Ecological Linkages is arguably the most important conservation initiative in Malaysia. It was created in 2009 as a government effort to protect biodiversity and ecosystem services by securing landscape connectivity between Peninsular Malaysia’s main forest blocks. Although an excellent and exciting plan on paper, its implementation is proving to be more challenging. Joining us to explain why the CFS is so important for wildlife conservation and the main challenges facing its implementation, are Dr. Ahimsa Campos-Arceiz, the Principal Investigator at the Management and Ecology of Malaysian Elephants (MEME) and Ange Tan, a Project Coordinator at Wild Asia.
