Jamie was conducting an undergraduate research project with Kerrie Wilson as part of the final semester of BSc degree, in preparation for an Honours program. The research project consisted of developing a PVA (Population Viability Analysis) for the Sumatran Tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae), in order to: (a) estimate the extinction probability of the species under current conditions, and (b) identify critical habitat.
The project was in collaboration with Matthew Linkie, who was determining the impact of road construction on forest cover and on tiger populations in Aceh, Indonesia.
