Poaching is still a very serious threat to Leuser's wildlife. During the last camera check, BPKEL staff has come across a number of snares which form an immediate threat to the tigers we've captured on film in recent months. All snares encountered have been removed,  next month we'll check out if this has discouraged the poachers sufficiently.

  1. Dear EoL Team, could you give an update if the anti-snares actions were successful? It appears that all the inventory and camera trapping will be almost useless if the poaching and snaring is not stopped...

  2. No new snares have been found in the area recently. It's our goal to start with continuous patrolling the area, also after we have moved the cameras to a new location.
