Let us tell you a story about a recent rescue of an Oriental Pied Hornbill… On that particular week, the 1stopbrunei wildlife rescue & release team was swamped with rescuing wildlife such as Pangolins and Cobra.

Written by Shavez. Playing some board games with my best friends in Sengkurong, I received a call at 9:00pm from a gentleman called Ah Loong. He called and ask what would I do with an animal like a Pangolin if I get one? And I replied ‘ Ahh… Well we usually rehabilitate them and check if they […]
Palm Civet Rescue! We got a text that this beautiful creature had wandered in someone’s home! We came the next morning and took it. It was thanks to the orders and wishes of the little young hero called Hasbul Suhaimi who also rescued the Slow Loris a few months back. Age definitely has no barrier […]
We’d heard about the work carried out by 1StopBrunei before we’d even reached Borneo, and on meeting them we were blown away by their passion for the environment, their incredibly welcoming nature and their absolute dedication to their cause. This is a group of people on a mission to make a difference, and to get the message out there that Brunei’s wildlife is worth protecting. We were particularly impressed by the positive, diplomatic and delicate way in which 1SB approach issues of poaching, habitat loss and littering, and absolutely agree with their philosophy that education and awareness is the key. It is reassuring to know that such a potentially fragile environment such as the Bruneian rainforest is in such safe hands.

A few months ago I was privileged enough to work with 1stopbrunei and experienced first-hand the enthusiasm and dedication this group of volunteers in conserving the flora and fauna of Brunei. They are a group of unique people who take an active approach to conservation by rescuing and releasing wildlife caught in the illegal trade; running regular clean ups along beaches and rivers; and communicating with conservationists globally to increase their understanding and knowledge. They are innovative in the methods they employ using drama, art, book clubs and documentary nights to make the issues facing wildlife accessible to a wide audience. They invest considerable time in developing strong relationships with schools and local communities, key in the preservation of Brunei’s natural landscape for generations to come.

I started joining the river cleanup with my kids and since then my interest towards nature and animal conservation grew..from personal passion to life commitment. I had brought my students for the river cleanups and invited 1StopBrunei for talks. I also join the river cruise embracing the beauty of Brunei mangrove. It was a wonderful experience! With a humbling beginning with few volunteers, now 1StopBrunei had reach our nation with very clear message on animal conservation: Discover. Protect. Love. Being a part of such movement is a wonderful feeling.
