As gazetted forest reserves, hunting is strictly prohibited in the Project Area. However, the threat of poaching of large and small fauna is still considered high in the NGR-SFM Project. SFD have to ensure that monitoring of entrance have to be monitored to prevent from poachers/hunters to enter the project area.

For the enhancement of protection of wildlife mitigation measure has been conducted as follow:


Installation of signboard depicting the reserve on the boundary


Dismantled access of poachers
