I have just returned from the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation conference on Tropical Biodiversity, held in Bali. There was a good turn out with over 800 participants from more than 60 countries and it was a great opportunity for us to learn about other research activities and projects taking place across Asia. It was exciting for me to see so many Indonesian students attending the conference and it may be that some of them join us at Harapan Rainforest to conduct their own research in the future.This was a fantastic chance for us to tell the international community about our work at Harapan Rainforest. We gave two presentations, one on our camera trapping studies of mammals and a second on our population surveys of the globally threatened Agile Gibbon. Both were well received, with the camera trapping presentation prompting valuable discussions on improving survey methods of threatened rare forest mammals.
