THE Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) is trying to track down the extremely rare Hose’s civet, which was photographed by camera traps in the Selaan-Linau Forest Management Unit (FMU) in upper Baram in the northern region.

“We are trying to find out where they are. Hose’s civets (Diplogale hosei) are found only in certain parts of Borneo and there are only two or three recordings of the species, including one in Brunei,’’ said WCS Malaysia Programme director Dr Melvin T. Gumal after the opening of a carbon offsets and forest conversation workshop at Wisma STA here yesterday.
