Study on reproduction of wild Borneo Orangutan
Report: KUZE NOKO
Date: 2013/1/14 - 2013/1/21
On 15th January, I visited Sabah Biodiversity Center and Sabah Wildlife Department to apply permission for export of orangutan's urine samples for hormone analysis.
However, they said that I might get permission after March 2013.
I stayed at Danum Valley Conservation Area from 16th to 20th January and followed orangutans for 3 days with our local research assistants.
I conducted fallen fruit census with them, too.
I checked four mothers still kept their baby born from 2010 to 2012.
One nulliparous female was pregnant while one parous female has not been pregnant yet.
Therefore I almost accomplished my purpose in this field trip.
