[Extract] Lake Kenyir in the State of Terengganu is a well-known haven for bird watchers – more than 230 bird species have been recorded. But very few people know that the forests surrounding the lake are home to many rare and threatened mammals. In fact, even fewer know that these forests function as an important wildlife corridor, linking the forests in Taman Negara in the south with the forests in Hulu Terengganu in the north. In fact, these forests lie within a globally important Tiger Conservation Landscape and are one of three priority areas according to the National Tiger Action Plan for Malaysia.
