Today I am thinking on the effect of climate change on wildlife including primates. Many articles related to haze and deforestation and the increase of temperature. Tropical wildlife is very sensitive to changes of temperature and the humidity. CO2 release influence both and effect on the health and behaviour of wildlife including primates. Changing behaviour might effect their breeding where in long term effected their generations and population. In conservation rapid research need to be done on the effect of climate change on wildlife future population. Many seniour officers in Malaysia relating to wildlife conservation are not scientists and they listen more listen to the foreigners rather than Malaysian. They need to change their colonial mind set and learn to be more patriotic about their own country. Those who are about retire please reassess the acheivement on their contribution to their country in conserving and protecting nature. We need more research grants, recognition for the local scientist and recruiting more future young scientists.
