Unusual Events at the TEAM Site: 

None

New Species: 

One possible new record for Pasoh: the Golden Cat (Catopuma temminckii). A Leopard Cat (Prionailurus bengalensis) was also captured on camera, last seen more than 10 years ago.

Protocol Activities: 

Retrieval of 30 cameras from Array 2. Total species identified in 2012 is 39 species (2011 only 34 species)

Protocol Problems: 

Uploading of tpk files from the vertebrate study was still problematic. With troubleshooting assistance from the technical team, among the problems identified were; insufficiency memory in laptop used and slow internet connection. There were other technical issues which delayed the whole uploading process of the 2012 data for more than a month.

Schedule Problems: 

None

Logistical Problems: 

Accessibility remains a major problem in especially array 2 of the camera trapping.

Suggestions: 

Resolve technical issues with the camera data uploading to make it more user-friendly, uses less memory and possible to work with limited internet connection as this may the situation in sites other than Pasoh.
