Monitoring Winged Species in HCV Area with Princeton University
Our organisation does not have the in-house expertise to deal with Flora and Fauna for nature conservation. Therefore we work closely with other stakeholders to get the necessary expertise to maintain, enhance or perhaps restore the biodiverse areas within or outside our concessions.
Musim Mas’ work with Princeton University is a good example of a valuable partnership with another stakeholder. Both parties engage in a mutually beneficial relationship to improve each other's performance.
As part of Musim Mas’ periodic peer review, Dr. Harris and Xingli Giam from the Ivy League university visited our Sorek plantations in April 2013. They organised and carried out a workshop to improve our data management to monitor winged species in HCV areas.
In return, we have provided various sample sites for Giam's thesis research on fishes in Riparian buffers.
