Hi all. This is extremely late in my part, but here is some pictures from the Sungai Ingei Faunal Expedition Launching Ceremony held last year 14 October 2009. During the launching ceremony, Standard Chartered Bank announced its sponsorship for Sungai Ingei Faunal Biodiversity Survey.
This project is supported by the National Heart of Borneo Council and WWF, and the leading institution being Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD).
SCB's funding for this Heart of Borneo Project is part of the US$500,000 prize donation from the Race for a Living Planet Environment Challenge which Brunei won earlier 2009. Thanks SCB for your kind support in this important project!!
