The site has an exceptional diversity of mammals and birds, including 10 species of hornbills. One third of the IBA is protected as a State Park. The highest threats to the site are commercial logging, land conversion and industrial development. MNS (BirdLife in Malaysia) is advocating for the protection and sustainable management of the whole forest complex and the establishment of a sustainable financing mechanism.
