Malayan Tapir (Tapirus indices) • one of the endangered species. The population of this species is decreasing from time to time. Human activities such as ch deforestation and illegal hunting are among the threats to this sp ecies. This resear aimed to study the habitat of Malayan tapir in Gunung Basor Forest Reserve. In this study, the home range is estimated from the data obtained. The elevation level and the types of land use that include in the estimated home range were determined. The data had been analyzed using the Geographical Information System (GIS). The total area of 2 8759 m by estimated home range obtained is 449175362.54 m² with perimeter using Minimum Convex Polygon (MCP) method. The elevation range in the estimated area is between 100 m to 1880 m. The land uses included are forest, river road, town, farm, rubber, oil palm, orchard and bushes.
