Wildlife presenter, Bertie Aaron Gekoski is back!  Don’t miss the first episode of Borneo Jungle Diaries. This time, Bertie meets Dr Benoit Goossens, lecturer at Cardiff University, and the founder and director of the Danau Girang Field Centre, set up in 2008. The centre is an important conservation hub to conservation and animal scientists from across the globe who come to study the rich bio diversity of the Bornean Jungle.

I am Here to Make a Difference to the Animals

Follow Bertie and Benoit, as they head out on the mighty Kinabatangan river, home to many important indigenous species, including the Asian elephant, pangolin and civet. Benoit declares that Borneo along, with his wife and son, are his three greatest loves in life.  ” I am here to make a difference. In order to protect and conserve these species, we must first learn how to care for them in the wild.” Soak up the hive of activity among the scientists and vets, and then watch and observe the unfolding story of Borneo’s charismatic creatures, as Benoit and Bertie witness the spectacle of a herd of elephants peacefully grazing on the riverbank. ” I think they know we are helping them,” says Benoit. “But they were here first.”
