The combination of Taman Negara National Park and the Sg Tekai Landscape in Pahang is expected to be the most significant area for the protection of tigers. As a result, Pahang is uniquely positioned to conserve a region where the tiger population is still at risk.
“Although smaller than the total area of the Main Range TCF, the geometry of the Greater Taman Negara TCF, especially that of Taman Negara and PRF south of Taman Negara, is advantageous to the conservation of landscape species by minimizing the edge and requiring a longer linear structure to fragment the area completely. Any proposals for road construction in the area should be reviewed carefully to maintain the overall geometry and connectivity of the larger landscape. Because Taman Negara is the most secure protected area in Peninsular Malaysia, the conservation prospect for tigers in the park is the greatest. The park should remain inviolate, allowing minimum development at the border, and strictly protected by ground patrols. Effects of ecotourism on the tiger prey community appeared minimal in the park as long as they were concentrated at a few isolated areas along the border”. (Kawanishi 2002).
