Abstract

The evergreen forest that used to support the cover large of part of Southern Thailand, Peninsular Malaysia and Sumatra are mere fractions on its previous size, depleted by logging, expanding farms and plantations. And yet, the numbers of tapir are decreasing. Department of Wildlife and National Park (DWNP) estimate that between 1100 to 1500 tapir still remain in forest. This study was conducted to get the information about the home range area of a translocated tapir and to produce a new map about a home range at once to conserve action and the activities that can harm tapir. The method that used to calculate the home range was the minimum convex polygon (MCP). As the result showed that the tapir home range was about 35 kilometres per square for the three months and frequented habitat in and around oil palm plantation compare to forested area. Further research is required to continue conservation plan for the future sustainability.
