The conservation targets as well as threats has been reduced to 4 threats and 4 targets respectively, when the conservation area management plan was revised. The description of targets and rationales for the selection as well as the conservation targets is indicated in Table 1 and Table 2.
Table 1: Descriptions of the Revised Conservation Targets in FMU 10
DESCRIPTIONS OF TARGET AND RATIONALES FOR SELECTION
UPLAND MIXED DIPTEROCARP FOREST (UMDF)
This habitat covers about 46 % of the FMU 10. An important habitat that supports about 80% of the flora and 70 % of fauna surveyed in the area. This habitat is the main site for forest restorations, controlled hunting and gateway for ecotourism and mountain climbing activities. It is still susceptible to encroachment, forest fire and illegal poaching for flora and fauna as well as small scale timber extractions if not checked. Target therefore still need to be maintained and monitored.
SUMMIT SCRUB (SS)
Forms the peak habitat at Gunung Trus Madi. Contains unique montane flora and fauna, namely Nepenthes x trusmadiensis. The area covers approximately the size of two (2) football pitch. Due to its fragile habitats, target needs to be monitored further, especially the impact of frequent visitations to the area.
The FMU 10 may support up to seven (7) species of this particular bird. The hornbills group is listed as protected fauna in the Wildlife Conservation Enactment 1997. Surveys so far indicated the presence of four (4) species in FMU10. Continuation of surveys is necessary.
