We’re traveling to Borneo this week because it’s the only place to find our Friday feline, the extremely rare bay cat.
While researching that post today, I found this and it’s worth sharing!
A little good news to close on — the rate of deforestation on Borneo is slowing, thanks to a decline in oil palm prices.
Only the clouded leopard — which is arboreal — is big enough, in my opinion, to pose a threat, and then only to unprotected young orangutans or weakened adults.
According to the IUCN, tigers aren’t on Borneo — just Sumatra. But we probably should ask the orangutans before totally ruling them out!
