Clouded Leopards Using Logging Roads
Many thanks to ecologist Chris Gordon for sharing his article, Use of Logging Roads by Clouded Leopards from (Cat News, 47) with us. This article details observations of clouded leopard tracks along logging roads in East Kalimantan, Borneo. The authors observed that clouded leopards appear to move onto and perhaps travel along these roads, even in heavily logged areas and areas with regular vehicle traffic. These observations provide important evidence that logging roads are not necessarily a barrier to clouded leopard movement.
