#Repost@timlaman ・・・ Photo by @TimLaman. A wild female orangutan in Borneo crosses a fallen tree making a natural bridge over a river. This is a new camera trap shot I just got on my recent visit to Gunung Palung National Park in Indonesian Borneo. I was there checking on my ongoing @NatGeo project to try to document the less well known nocturnal mammals. But in this case, I captured an orangutan female instead, actually carrying a baby on her belly (that is hard to see except its orange fur) who was being chased by bees and came down to the ground. If you look closely, you can see many bees around her. Orangutans like to raid bee hives and eat the honey, but when they get swarmed by the bees, they often drop to the ground to try to make an escape and this female just happened to cross this log over the river where my remote camera was set up. #orangutan,@saveGPorangutans, @YayasanPalung, #GunungPalungNationalPark,#Kalimantan,#rainforest,#Borneo,

HAPPY WORLD ORANGUTAN DAY! We are celebrating with an afternoon of music and stories here in ketapang. There's a good crowd here and we hope to teach them a little bit about orangutans today and why this species is so important for Indonesia. #worldorangutanday#indonesia#kalimantanbarat#borneo#orangutans

GPOP Research Manager, Alys Granados presented research at #atbc2018 from her PhD on #beardedpig responses to dipterocarp fruiting events in #sabah#malaysia. Dipterocarps are a family of trees found in South East Asia. The fruiting events take place every few years which provides a brief yet super abundant source of food for bearded pigs and other animals. However, these trees are targeted for selective logging in #borneo. Alys found that bearded pigs tracked dipterocarp fruit production in unlogged forest, which coincided with an increase in piglets that year, but this was not the case in logged forest. This suggests that selective logging of dipterocarp trees can have long term consequences on animal responses to dipterocarp fruiting events. #gunungpalung#kalimantanbarat#conservation#rainforest#tropical#ecology

GPOP Conservation director Terri Breeden and Research Manager Alys Granados are at #atbc2018 in #kuching#malaysia learning about research relevant to conservation in tropical ecosystems. We heard a great talk by Brian Crudge from @freethebears about bear bile farming in Vietnam. According to Brian, consumer preference for farmed bears is decreasing while consumers seem to prefer bile from wild bears. #Vietnam#asiaticblackbear#sunbear#conservation#wildlifetrafficking
