You'll hear more about sun bears from Dr Wong Siew Te, (CEO and Founder, Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre) Sunda clouded leopards from Chrishen Gomez (biologist and researcher, WildCRU, University of Oxford), and finally Sunda pangolins from Elisa Panjang (Pangolin Conservation Officer, Danau Girang Field Centre) and Dr Chong Ju Lian (Associate Professor & Lecturer, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu).
