Preventing wildlife extinctions has reached a point where active interventions are needed. Breeding and enlarging the gene pool has become more important than anything else...
After the Hairy rhinoceros, the next species on the critical list in Malaysia are Malayan seladang, Malayan tiger and Bornean banteng. Stopping poaching and trade is no longer enough. Law enforcement is not enough. Awareness is not enough. Our protected areas alone do not provide enough space to sustain viable populations. more about us
Birth rates and genetic diversity of rare species need to be increased
Work underway by BORA aims to stabilize and increase the numbers of the rarest species, and to reverse the present trends of declining numbers and inbreeding.
The BORA approach focuses on long term, big scale, populations, cells and molecules.
Join BORA in our plans to change the wildlife paradigm from basic ‘conservation’ to targeted professional management
We are equipped and motivated.
