Wildlife Management Notes Bukit Gombak. We Have Br..



We have brought you rescue stories and stories of animals growing up under our care. Now we want to bring you field notes from our wildlife management team, which handles over 60 conflict cases a month and works on mitigation measures including education.

For the first set of this new series, we are going to be taking a look at the lone trainspotting macaque from Bukit Gombak. Solitary monkeys, AKA transient monkeys, are individuals who have left their troop to join another troop. Due to our rapid urban development and habitat fragmentation, they will be sighted in urban areas and park connectors during their period of searching and wandering.

If you do see this individual or any other transient macaques, remember not to approach or feed them. Food provisioning can lead to the macaque hanging around and becoming habituated to humans. Instead, keep a safe distance and urge others to do the same, and inform us of the macaque’s location.

As fun as long train rides are, MRT stations are no place for macaques and let’s hope that this individual has found himself a troop soon.
