KOTA KINABALU: Human activities including development, poaching and illegal trapping of Sabah’s wildlife are endangering protected species, such as the Borneon Banteng (wild buffalo), proboscis monkey and Sunda Clouded Leopard.

A 10-year action plan has been drawn up to help protect these species, and is expected to be submitted to the Cabinet soon.
