SANDAKAN – On May 20 this year, the world’s only conservation centre for sun bears, the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre (BSBCC) in Sepilok, here, was shocked over a pleasant surprise. 

One of its female captive bears, Bintang, had given birth to a female infant bear.

Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre (BSBCC) founder Dr Wong Siew Te said the birth was completely unexpected. But it was bound to happen as the rescued bears at the centres have grown older. They are also kept mixed at a compound that is surrounded by the forest.

It was the first sun bear’s birth in captivity at the centre in the last 10 years.

The cub, later named "Luna" by supporters of BSBCC on Facebook, was at first taken care of by Bintang.
