Abstract

Sambar deer (Cervus unicolor) is one of the protected animals. However now the existence of sambar deer is increasingly threatened. Therefore, there is need for ex-situ conservation activities, one of the mis deer captivity in PT. Gunung Madu Plantations. An important component in the management of wildlife in captivity is the availability of food plants that need to be observed that aims to determine the productivity of forage as feed for sambar deer. The research method used a castle method by making the sample plots of grass. The results showed that there are two types of grass that feed the sambar deer in captivity. This type of feed consists pait grass (Axonopus compressus) and elephant grass (Pennnisetum purpureum). Pait grass (Axonopus compressus) has a productivity of 10,02 kg/m2/day, larger than the elephant grass (Pennnisetum purpureum) with a productivity of 3,94 kg/m2/day.
