In light of BBC's recent Big Cats documentary, we thought we would share a video of the rarest and most elusive cat of Borneo's 5 endemic wildcat species: the Bornean bay cat (Catopuma badia), which remains one the least known or recorded wildcats in the world.
Since first setting up our camera traps in 2015, we have captured footage of this endangered species just 4 times, but across 4 different habitat types. Here, this beautiful bay cat passes by one of our cameras in the lowland peat swamps of Gunung Palung National Park.
Please give us a hand! Please join us in our work to save critically endangered Bornean orangutans in Gunung Palung National Park (just go to link in profile). Your end-of-year tax deductible donation will help us work with communities surrounding Gunung Palung to: * Obtain legal title to their customary forest lands, preventing logging and conversion to farm land or oil palm plantations * Switch to sustainable, organic agriculture practices * Develop alternative livelihoods that use sustainable non-timber forest products. * Teach young people about the value of protecting Indonesia's unique rainforest and endangered wildlife. * Study wild orangutans!
