Our purpose is to further scientific research with the aim of contributing to long-term conservation projects in the area, and develop a better understanding of our environment and the living things we share it with
Danau Girang Field Centre is a collaborative research and training facility managed by the Sabah Wildlife Department and Cardiff University. It is situated in Lot 6 of the Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary in Sabah, Malaysia. Our research aims to help mitigate the loss of Asian biodiversity by understanding the effects of habitat fragmentation on the ecosystem, while encouraging in-situ conservation and engaging with NGOs, stakeholders and policy makers alike. We offer a variety of ways to study, welcoming PhD, MRes and MSc students from all over the world, provided that their research falls under our general theme. DGFC also offers facilities for field courses from overseas and within the Asia-Pacific region, including Malaysia. We are open to volunteers, professional training years and to research collaborations with scientists worldwide.
