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.

A mother and her infant feast on an ants nest they found high in the canopy at Cabang Panti Research Station, in Gunung Palung National Park. Locating food sources like these when fruit availability is low is a crucial skill this infant must learn from its mother

Searching for #orangutans often means following noises in the forest. Sometimes that leads you to sights like these
