Recce 26 October - 3 November 2009 - Part 1

Sungai Ingei Conservation Forest is situated in Ulu Belait and is considered to be one of the most pristine forests in Brunei. The place is quite inaccessible hence a recce trip was conducted deep into the heart of Ingei to determine possible camp sites and to establish research trails for the actual expedition.

The first recce trip to Sungai Ingei was conducted on 26 October – 3 November 2009. A team of 7 people was involved in the trip, headed by Awg Samhan Nyawa (Field & Camp Coordinator). A research fellow from UBD, Dr. Matt Struebig was involved in the recce to conduct preliminary research on bat diversity in Sungai Ingei Conservation Forest.

The group met up in Sungai Mau before taking a 5 hour boat ride to Sungai Ingei
