Conservation and life in Borneo

Bearing Up with Being Back from Borneo


Back in my kampung and enjoying the neighbouring hutan.

Well, I’ve been back in England a week or so now and am already thinking about getting over to Borneo again. When I do go back I hope to help out with more research-based activities and am also considering applying my teaching skills with indigenous communities.

I’m off to Russia in a few weeks to try and earn some money teaching English. Until then I’m free to enjoy being in England for a while. After that I’ll be doing a hair tube survey to look for mustelids on my local AONB.


This is the hoof print of a red deer, the largest native terrestrial mammal here.


We also have roe deer such as these.

It’s nice to see the contrast in wildlife here, though I’m already missing the diversity of Borneo. It’s a shame I was not able to stay longer in Sabah, but I’ll be back there when I can to do more for the bears.
