At the Danau Girang Field Center, Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary, a young male tarsier named Jamil was tagged with a small radio collar as part of the first study to better understand the life of this elusive nocturnal primate species.

Dr. Benoit Goossens, the director of Danau Girang Field Center said there was a need for better understanding of habitat needs, diet and social organisation of tarsiers, key to conservation policies for these unique little creatures.
