A study of availability camera traps assessment towards terrestrial vertebrates was conducted in Gunung Basor Forest Reserve, Kelantan. The main objective of this study is to collect baseline data on vertebrates’ species richness and composition in targeted area of Gunung Basor. A few of camera traps were used in sampling the data by capture the photographs of vertebrate animals in the area within salt as the bait. A total of 27 individuals that comprises of 6 species were detected in all points selected. The relative abundance had been deliberate and use in formula of Shannon diversity index to account species evenness of in Gunung Basor Forest Reserve. Analysis of cumulative curve was interpret be used to indicate the adequacy of vertebrate’s terrestrial survey in representing the fauna in the area. The factors that causes the species richness in the point’s area involves of climate and weather, forest fragmentation plus the nutrient and water sources availability. Nevertheless, elevation or altitude, size of natural forest and scale of study area are also determinants for species richness. More study is needed for this study research to obtain more data. In fact, wildlife management and conservation by use this method for surveying and monitoring animal in the area was useful.
