A Bornean elephant tagged with a satellite by the Danau Girang Field Centre
Deep in the middle of the jungle in Sabah, Malaysia, lies the Danau Girang Field Centre. It’s a collaborative research and training facility managed by Cardiff University and Sabah Wildlife Department.
Situated in Lot 6 of the Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary, the Field Centre contributes to long-term conservation projects in the area. It aims to give us a better understanding of our environment and the living things we share it with.
During Sustainability Week 2012, an exhibition in the University’s Main Building will tell the story of its work.
From the satellite tagging of elephants to the training of students, the exhibition will show the vital conservation work the Field Centre undertakes.
Some of the rare, endangered and curious animals that have been caught on camera traps around the jungle will also take centre stage in the exhibition. The camera traps have helped reveal information about the biodiversity of the Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary.
The exhibition will be in the VJ Gallery, Main Building during Sustainability Week (29th October – 2nd November and until the end of November. It is open to staff, students and members of the public between 9am and 5pm daily (excluding weekends).
