Sun bears in Borneo live in the lush tropical aseasonal rainforest.
With high solar radiation, high rainfall and constant warm temperature year round, this forest simply fills with life.
The forest forms multiple canopy layers, with the top layers measure average 50 m above the ground, and some "emergent" tree species reaching 70 m or more.
Under this condition, sun bears have evolved as an arboreal species to exploit the multiple strata in the forest.
Sun bears are superb climbers. They spend a lot of their time resting on big canopy branches, and sleeping in the tree nest that they made high on top of tree. They also forage on these multiple canopy layers, harvesting fruits, ants and other insects, and bee hives.
This is Cerah the female sun bear. She was rescued by Sabah Wildlife Department in 2007. Her life as a captive sun bear literary transform after the establishment of Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre (BSBCC) in 2008.
Here at BSBCC, she can have access to the forest enclosure. She can climb like a wild sun bear in her forest enclosure. She can eat termites and ants like a wild sun bear.
Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre aims to conserve sun bear through education, research, rehabilitation, and improve welfare for captive orphan sun bears. We need your help to achieve these goals.

After exploring this liana (forest vines) for about 15 min, Cerah decided to climb higher. She literary disappeared in the three canopy about 30 m above the ground. But she did not stay long up high. Slowly she descended from the liana to the ground.
