KOTA KINABALU: A new online series, Borneo Jungle Diaries, showcases Borneo’s incredible wildlife and the scientists trying to save them.
Deep in the heart of Sabah’s jungle lies a remote facility, the Danau Girang Field Centre (DGFC).
In this isolated and wild location managed by Sabah Wildlife Department and Cardiff University, a dedicated team of young Malaysian and international research scientists hope to unravel the mysteries of the Kinabatangan jungle.
With a combination of field-developed gadgets and traps using state-of-the-art tracking technology, they work to accomplish the important mission of DGFC to safeguard Kinabatangan’s most enigmatic animals through monitoring, learning and understanding.
“Borneo Jungle Diaries investigate life behind the scenes at the field centre,” said Dr Benoit Goossens, Director of DGFC and a lecturer at Cardiff University.
Aaron ‘Bertie’ Gekoski, known for the Borneo from Below and Borneo Wildlife Warriors online series, follows a different scientist at DGFC and animal per episode.
“As we tag a Sunda pangolin for the first time ever, we gain intimate insights into the behavior of nocturnal primates, track a herd of elephants, and much more,” explained Goossens.
“The first episode will be released on Scubazoo TV (scubazoo.tv) and DGFC Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Danau- Girang-Field-Centre- 147476775319983/) this afternoon at 4 pm, local time, in conjunction with World Environment Day. Don’t miss it.
