The Bornean peacock-pheasant has been recorded in a number of protected areas within Borneo, including Sungai Wain Nature Reserve and Danau Sentarum National Park (2).
Within the Sungai Wain Nature Reserve, fire breaks are maintained every dry season to limit the distance forest fires can travel. Extensive awareness and education work is also being carried out in the reserve, and there are daily patrols to prevent illegal hunting and logging (3). However, such extensive conservation actions within protected areas are uncommon in Indonesia (3), and further conservation measures are clearly needed for this striking and endangered bird.
Numerous conservation measures have been recommended, which will help not the only Bornean peacock-pheasant, but also the numerous other species affected by habitat loss in Borneo. These measures include promoting prohibition of hunting, creating new protected areas, and extending existing protected areas (2).
