Keeper Notes

 

“We are still waiting for Joseph to leave vacation so you will need to open the gate by the modglen house behind the vaca cage. If by chance he shifts over tonight please close the quillitine doors and call me and I will come close everything up so Carole can check it and take down the tunnel when she arrives. (Joseph moved this morning, so he is off vacation now)

There are a bunch of signs to be moved that we didn’t have time to move today. List on white board.

Please have someone pound in the plastic pipe and hang green chain for Sundari and Cheetaro so the yellow shirts can clean the cougars.

Plastic pipe leaning up against everything else trailer and green chain and pole pounder inside door of tool trailer.

Zimba back in hospital with stitches on a wound he is also back on meds, they are on the counter in the hospital. Twice a day.

You look a bit slim tomorrow for keepers, call if you need to.” – Gale

Big Cat Rescue Funds Flat Headed Cat Project in Borneo

In June of 2016 Big Cat Rescue donated to support the Wildlife Conservation & Ecology Lab at University Malaysia Sarawak, headed by Dr Mohd-Azlan J. Azad, with his project studying Small Borneo Wild Cats.

There are only five species of cats in Borneo but little is known on their exact occurrence and their habitats are increasingly being reduced for oil palm and other land use. Dr Mohd-Azlan J. Azad and his team have set infra red censored cameras in Ulu Sebuyau National Park in Sarawak, Malaysia to investigate the ecology of, in particular, the Flat-Headed Cat .

This National park has an area totaling 18,287 ha, consisting primarily of peat swamp forest. The National park is currently not open to visitors as it has no infrastructure and is located far from human settlements.

Camera trapping in this protected area started in late 2015, and to date 1314 camera trap photos have recorded Binturong, Banded Linsang, Leopard Cat, Marbled Cat and the rare and Endangered Flat-Headed Cat.

These photographic captures provide new and important information that can be documented about this threatened carnivores occurrences and its habitat preferences to further understand this mysterious and elusive species in the wild.
