The Issue

Hose's civets are blackish-brown, with a long body and short legs. Its underparts are greyish or yellowish-white. As they are very elusive animals, the exact status of Hose's civets is uncertain. It is likely, however, that they have been adversely impacted by human activity such as logging throughout their range. Low population densities could make them vulnerable to the region-wide habitat loss and degradation associated with logging and development. Because of this, the IUCN has listed them as Vulnerable. In Sarawak, Malaysia, they are listed as protected.

The Solution

Makes use of hair snares and automatic infra-red camera-traps to detect small carnivore species within the Sela’an Linau Forest Management Unit (FMU), a logging concession in the Upper Baram, Sarawak.
Hose’s Civet & Small Carnivore Project (HOSCAP)
HOSCAP Borneo is a research-based conservation project that studies small mammalian carnivores (such as civets, mongooses, martens, wild cats, and others) in a logging concession in Sarawak. The project has a particular interest in the rare and elusive Bornean endemic, the Hose’s Civet, a species little known to science. HOSCAP Borneo aims to recommend guidelines and management strategies that would ensure the conservation and long term survival of small carnivores in logging concessions in Sarawak.
