With a wealth of experience and a particular focus on sun bears, Kim is deeply committed to their well-being and conservation.

Dr. (Hon) Wong Siew Te

Dr. (Hon) Wong Siew Te, founded the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre in 2008 and is the drive behind the project. Wong, one of the few Malaysian wildlife biologists who was trained in Taiwan and U.S.A., has been studying and working on the ecological conservation of the sun bear since 1998. His pioneer studies of sun bears in the Bornean rainforest have taken him into the most threatened wildlife habitat on Earth, where field work is exceedingly difficult.

Wong has witnessed bears kept in small cages, unhygienic and often disgusting conditions. It was seeing sun bears in these awful conditions combined with animal welfare and veterinary education and his love for sun bears, which inspired him to set up the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre (BSBCC) in 2008.

The BSBCC work daily in the natural habitats of sun bears in South East Asia to aid the protection and conservation of the species.
