Understand distribution and movements of wild water buffalo in MPF relative to the distribution of domestic buffalo adjacent to the protected area in order to mitigate threats from genetic swamping and disease transmission through producing photographic evidence of extant wild water buffalo. Additionally, try to raise awareness of the conservation significance of MPF for wild water buffalo in the wider conservation community and investigate genetic variation within wild water buffalo population in MPF and quantify gene introgression from domestic buffalo adjacent to the protected area.

Strategic Direction: 1 Safeguard priority globally threatened species in Indochina by mitigating major threats
