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.

My 7 years old boy was happy to be back to nature again! Thanks to Prof. Dr Wong for guiding us back to nature heritage and environment! We enjoy seeing the bears exploring in the wild while professor explaining about their daily life! Virtual tour can be fun! (and easy) especially with younger kids!

Fantastic virtual tour! So interesting and informative. I would recommend for anyone with a device and a love of nature. Such a great way to spend a Sunday morning.

An amazing live virtual experience. Booked it for a 10 year old's birthday and he watched it live with friends and family scattered all around the world. Dr Wong was fantastic and really informative - one could feel his excitement through the screen and how much he cares for the bears. Thank you and we look forward to visiting in person.
