Sun Bears Play A Vital Ecological Role In Our Jung..

 



Sun bears play a vital ecological role in our jungles as seed dispersers, forest engineers, forest doctors and forest farmers.

They feast on, and therefore, control the termite population which protects the forest trees. In the process of eating stingless bees, they carve holes in trees that hornbills and flying squirrels use as nests. And when they feed on earthworms, they plough the soil, making it easier for new trees to grow.

However, poaching and deforestation are pushing sun bears to extinction. A Perhilitan analysis estimates that there are only 300 to 500 sun bears left in Malaysia as of 2018.

—————

Beruang matahari memainkan peranan ekologi penting di hutan kita sebagai penyebar benih, jurutera hutan, doktor hutan dan petani hutan.

Mereka suka makan anai-anai, dan oleh itu, mengawal populasi anai-anai dan melindungi pokok-pokok hutan. Dalam proses memakan kelulut, mereka mengukir lubang di pohon yang digunakan burung enggang dan tupai terbang sebagai sarang.

Namun, pemburuan haram dan penebangan hutan mendorong kepupusan beruang ini. Analisis Perhilitan menganggarkan bahawa hanya ada 300 hingga 500 beruang matahari di semenanjung Malaysia pada tahun 2018.
