With a focus on the Sunda clouded leopard, we are asking key questions about felid density and abundance in this under-studied habitat, investigating the threats to felids and mitigating these through work with local communities.

Susan is a wildlife conservationist who has been working in Indonesia since 2002. With a focus on the largest carnivore on the island of Borneo, this project is the first long-term study of clouded leopards in a peat-swamp forest.
