The Sabah Orang-utan Landscape (SOUL) project aims to identify factors that could balance impacts of heavy logging with maintaining high densities of orang-utans in the Ulu Segama-Malua Forest Reserve (USM) over long periods. Together these two reserves - which form a core part of the Kinabatangan-Segama landscape - support over 3,000 orang-utans. Based on field data, this project will be able to determine exactly which parts of the Kinabatangan-Segama landscape must be retained in order to save this globally important orang-utan population. WWF-Malaysia coordinates SOUL and Asian Rhinos and Elephants Action Strategy (AREAS) work together as orang-utan, elephants and rhinoceros represent the three most well-known threatened large mammals in Sabah.
