The management currently has committed to forest research projects related to forest growth and wildlife survey. These projects are;
A. Scientific Collaboration on the Monitoring Spatial Patterns of Mammals In and Around the Pasin Forest Management Unit
This project aims to investigate the spatial characteristics of mammalian biodiversity in the Pasin FMU and provide an overview of biodiversity distribution, in both the FMU and the neighboring plantation areas under the management of Ta Ann Plywood Sdn Bhd (LPF 0010). It has been developed with Leibniz Institute for Zoo and wildlife Research, based in Berlin, Germany and is supported by WWF Sarawak.
B. Establishment and Assessment of Permanent Sample Plot at Three FMU’s of Ta Ann Group
This project is a scientific collaboration to establish a statewide PSPs network under Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC). The ultimate objective of PSP network is to enhance the sustainability of timber production from the forest management.
C. Scientific Collaboration on the Identification and Monitoring of Endangered, Rare and Threatened Species Around Salt Licks for Sustainable Forestry
This research is aim to gather and analyse the relevant information on the dynamics, occurrence, occupancy and distribution of terrestrial medium to large mammalian species near salt licks in the FMU that will be managed for sustainable forest management certification.
This information can be potentially be used as baseline data for forest management planning and the management and monitoring of the High Conservation Value (HCV) in relation to the distribution to Endangered, Rare and Threatened species near salt lick.
D. Establishment, Monitoring and Maintenance of Permanent Sample Plot for FMU
In order to continuously monitor the forest stand and growth development over long periods, 27 SUs from FRA has been selected through Ranked Set Sampling (RSS) method and convert into PSP. Re-assessment of the PSP is to be carried out periodically on a 3-5 years interval.
