Abstract:

This paper aimed to discuss wildlife-vehicle collisions along the roadway in Wilayah Jengka, Pahang, Malaysia and provide the data sources for conservation, preservation and mitigation of wildlife. The primary objective of this survey is to reveal and prepare the roadkill inventory of fauna and avifauna mortality in Wilayah Jengka plantation zone due to wildlife-vehicle collisions. Some of the animals are listed under Schedule 1 and others in Schedule 2 of the Act 716. Wildlife-vehicle collisions (WVC) contributes to road mortality of wildlife species in Wilayah Jengka and little is known about roadkill in this area. The highest mortalities include Common Palm Civet (27.41%), Leopard Cat (14.51%), Large Indian Civet & Barn Owl (9.61% each), Clouded Monitor (8.06%), Long-Tailed Macaque & Wild Boar (6.45% each), Monitor Lizard (4.83%), Greater Coucal, Oriental Honey Buzzard & Red Junglefowl (3.22% each), and White-Breasted Waterhen (1.61%).
