The most interesting article for me was the results of the Monitor lizard survey. For the past year, volunteers and staff at the Reserve have been conducting regular surveys to find out just how many Malayan water monitors (Varanus salvator) are at the Reserve. Contrary to be impression that there are hundreds and hundreds of these magnificent animals, the survey observed only about 25-50 per trip. More surveys will be conducted to learn more about these animals. I only managed to join a few of the surveys last year.
