Into the Heart of the Jungle: Tracking the Black Panthers of Malaysia

Reuben Clements, co-founder of the Malaysian non-profit Rimba (jungle in the Malay language), has found the cat’s hideout.

Clements, who is also a field conservation associate with the international wild cat organization Panthera and Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo, and his team have been tracking black panthers on the Malay Peninsula south of the Isthmus of Kra. There almost all panthers, or leopards, are black. Nowhere else in the world are there as many black panthers.
