Caught on Camera! Camera Trapping Activities in Sarawak by Dr Jason Hon, WWF-Malaysia Sarawak Programme Leader

Day / Date: Friday, June 10, 2016
Time:  7:00pm
Venue:   Lecture Hall, Swinburne University of Technology, Sarawak Campus, 
                Jalan Simpang Tiga, Kuching (Location map is attached.)

Camera trapping has a long history of use in the conservation world to obtain quantifiable data on elusive, hard to see animals, including Africa.  These cameras are set up in areas where zoologists anticipate animals, such as along animal trails or salt licks.  

Dr Jason Hon, WWF-Malaysia Sarawak Programme Leaderwill highlight the findings from the camera trapping research that has been undertaken by WWF staff over the past several years in Sarawak.  

Dr Hon prefers to experience nature in real time rather than through the lens or magazines.  However, this talk is an excellent opportunity for young and old alike to understand and value Sarawak's diverse biological landscape.  

He received his doctorate degree from the Graduate School of Global Environmental Studies, Kyoto University, Japan and his MSc in Ecology from Aberdeen University, Scotland.  

Dr Hon's talk, 'Caught on Camera! Camera Trapping Activities in Sarawak' is jointly organised my Malaysian Nature Society Kuching Branch, WWF and Swinburne University of Technology.   

The talk will be held in the Lecture Hall at Swinburne University of Technology, which is located at the corner of Jalan Simpang Tiga and Jalan Upland.  There is plenty of parking available on campus a map of it can be found at www.swinburne.edu.my.
