Leslie Small, is a very special animal keeper from Taronga Zoo, Sydney, Australia. She has been taking care of the two sun bears in the zoo for many years. Leslie contacted me about sun bear husbandry questions many years ago and we stay communicated regularly there after. Believe me or not, although years of communication, this is the first time that I see Leslie and hear her voice. However, this is all not important. What is important is Leslie has a special heart for sun bears, the species that she cares for all these years. She has help and tries hard to help us fund raising and help raise awareness about sun bears.
Thank you Leslie! I hope I can meet you in person one day and give you many big hugs!
Here is a new sun bear video blog by Audrey and Howard

Soon the rescued sun bears will be in their new home. Next step - save the wild sun bears from extinction. Siew Te Wong and Dr. Audrey Low discuss the upcoming relocation. Exciting times. The culmination of years of work for Wong and so many others. Hope!
Back in April 20th 2009, I received an email from Dr. Audrey Low, a Malaysian lecturer and educator based in Australia. Like many others who contacted me out of the blue, she had been following my blog about the works we done in BSBCC for some time. From her sincere email, she offered her help as a Borneo specialist, anthropologist, and nature lover, etc., anything that I can think of, as long as she can help. She also mentioned her Australian hubby, Howard Jackson, is a filmmaker who also teaches film production in university.
“Uhmmm…, filmmaker.. Borneo specialist…sun bear.. the least known bear in the world… “
It did not take a long time to figure out what they can help me and the sun bear.
Remember in my old blog about how can you help us? I mentioned: “do what you do best to help us!” Among a long list of things where people can do to help, “...if you are a film maker, make a film about sun bear and help us tell the world about their stories and plights"
So, after almost a year of emailing, and skyping between north and south hemisphere, Audrey and Howard will be coming to Sabah on April to help us produce a video about sun bear and our work at BSBCC to help sun bears.
