kittykat23uk posted a topic in WorldwideHi all I am looking for one or more people to join me to return to Borneo next year, currently planning for February. Guided by Mike of Adventure Alternative Borneo these guy have had success with that most sought-after of cats, the clouded leopard and this trip is tailored to give us the best chance of success by spending a lot of time on night drives in the forest of Deramakot and Danum Valley. I need one or more companions to join me to be able to make the trip affordable. Happy to room share. Outline itinerary is: Days 1-5: Danum and Kawag (3 and 2 nights) - entry point Lahad Datu airport, meet by AA B driver Days 6/7: Sukau homestay - breaks up journey between Kawag and Deramakot - chance for flat headed cat, ground cuckoo, 2 x river cruise per day and a visit to Gomongtong caves - good area for red leaf monkeys and orangutans and of course smelly caves and bird nests. Days 8-14: Deramakot, inc 2 hour night drives each night, extra time pay cash locally to guide. Day 15: Depart, private transfer Sandakan or Kota Kinabalu There will be loads of birds and mammals to see. Check out my last Borneo trip report for a taster.http://safaritalk.net/topic/12548-birds-beasts-and-bugs-trekking-in-sabah-borneo/?hl=borneo But what makes this trip extra special is that it's guided and we'll do night drives to look for nocturnal mammals and birds! Here's a trip report from Deramakot (not mine) http://mammalwatching.com/Oriental/Otherreports/RW%20Sabah%202016.pdf Please let me know if you are interested in joining me, as I am really keen to go!

jeremie posted a topic in World wildlifeThey say the Taiwan extinct sub-specie was in fact not distinct tun the continental sub-specie. They state there is now really good habitat on Taiwan, deforestations and hunting are controlled. Preys are now overcrowding the forests of the islands. The country could hold a significant population of clouded leopard. http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/extinction-countdown/could-extinct-clouded-leopards-be-reintroduced-in-taiwan/
