Conservation and life in Borneo

Beruang Madu

“Beruang Madu” is the Malay/Indonesian name for the sun bear, its literal translation is “honey bear” (Note that bear=beruang & honey=madu; the word order is different in Malay/Indonesian). Beruang Madu is also the title of a recent short Indonesian film about the sun bear. It has some really nice shots in it and is well owrth watching. My personal favourite is when the young bear drinks water from a pitcher plant. Enjoy.
