Today in Sepilok I...

...again visited the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre;

...completely forgot that I'm a gritty field naturalist and cooed over baby orangutans;

...was amused to see intelligent primates being watched by other primates;

...clicked a gratuitous orangutan selfie (two mums and their two babes behind me in this photo);

...again visited the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre;

...watched Debbie up a tree;

...saw Damai having a roll in the dust;

...fell for the beauty of a blousy melastome;

...met Wong Siew Te, the charming, committed, expert, communicative founder and CEO of the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre, and heard about his many years' experience in the forest and the work of his dedicated team with sun bears;

...learned that all Natalie needs before being experimentally released into the wild is a helicopter ride to the core area of Tabin (anyone have a spare helicopter?);

...and (as all the real sun bears were really far away) may have taken a sun bear poster selfie. Just maybe.
