THE 1stopbrunei Wildlife club recently retrieved their motion sensor cameras that were placed in an undisclosed forest area.
Looking through the contents of the cameras, the club saw photos of rarely-seen species of animals, notably a porcupine and a civet cat.
According to the club, although the civet cat has not been properly identified, Brunei is known to house one of the world’s rarest species of civet cats.
The club hoped that with the recent findings, it will show Bruneians that the country is blessed with natural treasures and will encourage them to protect the environment as wildlife needs a large area of undisturbed forest for their survival.
1stopbrunei Wildlife, being a non-profit organisation, is in need of constant financial support to conduct activities. Therefore, individuals who wish to show their support can purchase the 1stopbrunei Wildlife T-shirts from XOIA, a local start-up located at Unit BRS 36 on the 3rd floor of The Mall in Gadong.
Proceeds from sales will be used to fund the club’s activities. XOIA may also be contacted through their Facebook page facebook.com/xoiabn or Instagram @xoia_bn.
Corporate organisations or individuals who are interested to contribute financially to their cause can contact the club through their Facebook page at facebook.com/1SBWildlife or Instagram @wildlifeclub.
