The Murud Black Slender Toad is known from undisturbed montane mossy forest on leaves of plants a few metres away from a small stream (Hertwig et al. 2014). Listed as Critically Endangered, as a precautionary approach, because even though they may occur slightly more widely, their current estimated extent of occurrence (EOO) is 10 km2.
Murud Black Slender Toads live in a tiny area of forest in #Sarawak #Malaysia. They’re critically endangered directly by #palmoil #deforestation. Support them by boycotting brands that cause their extinction #Boycott4WildlifeTweet
Pulong Tau National Park has only recently been gazetted and there is no infrastructure in place to provide habitat protection for the species at present.
