Project Report | Jan 31, 2023
Another wonderful year of camera trapping!

Happy New Year everyone and thank you all once again for your wonderfully generous donations to this exciting project which is allowing us to help monitor the Bornean orangutansreintroduced into the Bukit Batikap Protection Forest, and of course all of the other wonderful wildlife species which inhabit this pristine rainforest. This project has been truly wonderful in providing us with long-term data on the mammal community in Batikap so they can be protected long into the future.


Whilst we are working on getting new cameras out to the field (and stay tuned for more information soon), we have been delighted to start processing some of the new images collected by the BOS Foundation Post Release Monitoring (PRM) team, and we have some treats for you!


We recently captured an image of an unknown female orangutan with her young offspring. As you can see this mother is getting a little wet and you can just make out her young child hanging on to her side (and even treading on her feet), we assume to shelter from the rain. We’ll work with the BOS Foundation expert babysitters, technicians and veterinarians and see if we can work out who it is. But it’s great to see this mother and baby thriving following a downpour in Batikap!


Another image of an extremely rare gem was recorded in August 2022. Although we have documented the presence of several rare and elusive felids, and this is not the first image we have of this species, we were delighted to see this beautiful, healthy marbled cat (Pardofelis marmorata) appear on camera. Relatively little is known about this species, though they are threatened by habitat loss and hunting and listed at Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List. We hope to gather more data on this species in the future to help contribute to current state of knowledge and conservation plans for their long-term protection.


Lots of mammals have been showing up on the cameras and we couldn’t resist posting this beautiful image of a sun bear!


Stay tuned for more updates and news and thank you again to everyone for your unwavering support. We wish you all a very happy and healthy 2023!
