Melvin Gumal, director of the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Malaysia Program, received the 2014 Whitley Award (the international conservation prize) for his decades-long effort to conserve the world’s rarest orangutans in Malaysia’s state of Sarawak, Borneo. He and his team of researchers involve local communities, parks management, and government in enforcement of existing laws and development of livelihood sources that discourage illegal hunting, logging and aim at protection of forestland.
