Road project will split jumbos, say experts


Their right of way: Bornean elephants crossing a plantation road in the Lower Kinabatangan region.

KOTA KINABALU: Isolated Bornean elephant populations in the east coast Lower Kinabatangan will be further fragmented should a road and a bridge be built there, said a wildlife researcher.

Director of Danau Girang field centre in Lower Kinabatangan Dr Benoit Goosens said the proposed project would split elephant herds in Sukau with those in Lokan and Tangkulap.
