The rapid loss of the Earth's biodiversity associated with the rapid expansion of oil palm plantation in fulfilling the accelerated growing demands of country's economic growth has caused large areas of forest to be disturbed and converted, thus creating boundaries, producing forest edges which also known as one of the main causes of forest fragmentation. A total of 15 camera traps were mounted and relocated in a fragmented forest in Saremas, Wilmar, Bintulu, Sarawak. A total of 3, 798 trap days with28 identified animal species recorded. There are five vulnerable species, four near threatened and eighteen with least concern species recorded classified according to IUCN. Activity pattern were analyzed based on hours and moon phases for selected species with independent event (n) > 20. Tragulus sp. and Hystrix sp. were found to have higher activity level during full moon.
