Virtual Safari Experience With Bornean Sun Bear

Hosted by Dr. Wong Siew Te - The Papa Bear


Malaysian Chinese, born in 1969 and raised in Penang at northern Peninsular Malaysia. “Wong” as I am known as, is actually my family name, and “Siew Te” is my first name. I love animals all my life. Since I was a first grader, “animal expert” was my ambition on the student record until the very last year in high school. I started my career as a field biologist/research assistant doing wildlife survey, camera trapping, radio collaring and tracking large mammals, taking care of endangered species at Pingtung Wildlife Rescue Center, and all of goofy stuff people seen in Discovery Channel. In 1998, I began to study the ecology of Malayan sun bears in a rainforest of Malaysian Borneo as a project for M.S. thesis, in University of Montana, USA. I continue my doctorate study with the same university, same study area looking at the ecology of bearded pigs, sun bears, and rainforest. In 2008, I founded the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre in Sandakan and be the Chief Executive Officer until today.

We loved the virtual safari! It was fantastic to see the sun bears up close. Dr Wong was full of lots of interesting stories and information about the bears and conservation, and he welcomed questions from everyone. Highly recommended and a lot of fun!

Fantastic hour spent learning about sun bears and even better having the opportunity to see them. So glad for the opportunity and kudos to Dr Wong Siew Te who is the inspiration behind this centre.
