Conflict spike


Highly endangered: According to the Energy and Natural Resources Minister, there are now fewer than 150 of the Malayan tigers in the country.

INCIDENTS of human and wildlife conflict have risen since the movement control order was lifted while crimes against wildlife are also expected to increase this year, says the Wildlife and National Parks Department (Perhilitan).

The department points to an increase in wildlife and human conflict after Covid-19 movement restrictions were relaxed, with 12,799 such complaints received in 2021 compared to 11,811 complaints in 2020.
