Photo update 8: Personal grooming

Hey Rimba followers, it’s been awhile…what did we say about February being hectic??? That continued all through March, as the Kenyir Wildlife Corridor Project wrapped up its field sampling in Terengganu and prepared to start on their next sampling site, in Perak. So the old research station in Kampung Basung has been packed up and a new field house was found in Gerik…hopefully a new Project Update will be coming out soon with more info!

In between, we’ve had a lot of delays due to some intensive travelling and Reuben‘s nasty brush with scrub typhus! So the updates have been a little slow in coming…and we ask that you bear with us while we sort out our latest operations.

In the meantime, to make sure you don’t forget us just yet, here’s another ‘video’ we produced by stitching together multiple camera-trap shots. It features one of the prettier denizens of the jungle – the Golden Cat (Pardofelis temminckii). It’s a fairly easy species to catch on camera-trap, but this was the first time we saw one sitting right in front of the camera, happily grooming itself without a care in the world, just like a house cat – which is why we simply couldn’t resist showing you this charming video!

More updates coming soon…
