Video "On Borrowed Time" wins top honours at film festival

Posted on 31 October 2011    
'On Borrowed Time' trains a spotlight on the poaching crisis in Belum-Temengor, a forest complex in northern Peninsular Malaysia, and calls for the problem to be put on the national agenda. 

Filmed by award-winning Malaysian documentary makers Novista for WWF-Malaysia and TRAFFIC Southeast Asia, it won a top honour at the Eco Film Festival in Malaysia.

The Belum-Temengor forests are of critical importance for the conservation of tigers and other endangered species, yet research and monitoring by WWF-Malaysia and TRAFFIC Southeast Asia since 2008 have documented decimation of the wildlife by relentless illegal hunting, with little standing in poachers' way.
