I went out to the Care Centre today to check on Zidane. While still in a pretty awful state he is improving. We have brought one of the Camp Buluh staff back to town to sit with him throughout the day. He offers Zidane food whenever he feels like it. Zidane is eating but he is reluctant to drink. However, the affection he shows for people is touching. He actually slid off his makeshift cot for a hug. Thank you Brigitta for your generous donation of $100 it is very much appreciated by all of us.

Elly, from the UK office, is visiting the field projects at the moment so she came to the Care Centre too.
Elly receiving an enthusiastic welcome.
There is a pair of binturongs (Arctictis binturong) also known as bearcats at the Centre at the moment.
They are very cool animals. It is a dream of mine to see one in the wild… as well as to Zidane back in the trees.
