Between January 14-19 2023, the Kuamut Rainforest Conservation Project hosted a Biodiversity Data Management and Analysis Workshop at Danum Valley Field Centre. The workshop was a collaboration between SEARRP, the Tropical Ecology & Entomology (TEE) Lab of the Asian School of the Environment (ASE), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and was sponsored by Permian Global. The Kuamut Rainforest Conservation Project aims to establish a Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) project involving 80,000 hectares of tropical forests within the Kuamut Forest Reserve, and among its top priorities is biodiversity conservation, of which biodiversity monitoring is a key component. The goal of this workshop was to ensure that the KRCP generates well-managed, high-quality, and accurate biodiversity data from field monitoring activities and produces outputs and analyses needed for future monitoring reports. The workshop covered biodiversity monitoring activities such as camera trapping, acoustic monitoring, the Forest Integrity Assessment (FIA) tool, and dung-beetle sampling.
