Shavez Cheema, Position Founder
I founded this club in 2012 officially. I have always been into animals since I was a kid , watching animal planet and national geographic. I started to explore the jungles of Brunei by myself and also with my friends. I hope to raise the profile of the wonderful animals found in Borneo and protect them through various activities such as education and rescues.I hope to be the voice for the voiceless.
Apart from Animals, I love Drama, Squash, Elvis, MJ and Beegees.
Chun Xing Wong, President
Wildlife never ceases to amaze me. There is always something new to learn about them. That is why I have chosen to spend my whole life exploring the wildlife in Borneo.
I grew up in Sabah studying in schools located next to forests. As a curious boy, I willingly expose myself to the natural surroundings of my schools and learned a lot about nature. Nature has been a great teacher to me and shaping me the way I am now.
Currently, I am a university student majoring in Biogeography. It was here in university where I have been given the opportunity to learn more about wildlife with 1StopBorneo Wildlife. With 1StopBorneo Wildlife, I hope to be able to venture into unexplored wilderness, discover new species, and work on new solutions to conserve these wonderful wildlife we are blessed with.
Special interests: Spiders, Insects, and everything related to spiders and insects. Trust me, they are gorgeous!
Emmanuel Michael Sydney, Head of Education
I am a curious learner of the world. I was born and raised in Borneo, and want to be a part in conserving the forest of Borneo. I am committed to be a conservationist and save the endangered animals of Borneo, and want to learn more about Borneo’s nature. I am the Head of Education in 1StopBorneo Wildlife, and we give wildlife educational talks to schools in Sabah. I look forward for a better future for the community of Borneo and their sustainable relationship with the forest.
Jacklyn, Head of RiverCleanups
Currently a student majoring in forestry field, I am still very new, and always been excited- committed to learn about our forest. It is been a pleasure to be part of this project. As the Head of CleanUp in 1StopBorneo Wildlife, our team will create awareness by giving talks and conduct a clean up project in any part of Borneo. We hope to give new and fresh environment not only for the wildlife, but for all of us. Jacklyn is leading the Cleanup project to have a healthier environment for people and animals. Jacklyn is a very dedicated lady and always attends the conservation projects organized by the group
Bud Chapman ,Position Commitee Member
I am a mature student of the world, committed to environmental awareness, protecting the native animals of Brunei and helping people achieve their goals in life.
I believe that with team we can all achieve our goals and I am really enjoying being part of this team.
My background has been as a member of the emergency services and in education, currently I work in a support role for CfBT Education Services.
It has been a privilege to be able to support 1stopBorneo Wildlife by looking after and releasing back into nature some of the native animals found here. As Head of Animal Rehabilitation and Release my role will be to prepare those animals we receive with the help of other volunteers.
I look forward to lots more time and experiences that will benefit Brunei, its environment and natural heritage.

Hana Awang, Commitee Members
A sunny Bruneian gal in love with the world, I believe in kindness and nature.
I joined 1StopBorneo Wildlife as part of 2016's New Year's resolution towards positivity and aligning my actions with my beliefs. I've been learning countless things since; happy, silly facts to eye-opening truths, all invaluable. Like the better things in my life, wanting to help ended up helping me more.
I believe the humanity in us is kind, gentle and protective when we are aware of others hurting. Education is key to awareness and I aim to help raise it as much as I possibly can, through any way possible, from formal educational talks to a chat about animal fun facts over coffee.
Richard Thomas, Commitee Members
'I am also a mature student of the world with a passion for wildlife, tropical jungles and the protection of the native wildlife of Brunei.
My background is British Royal Air Force for 12yrs and 28yrs in TelecommunicationsNetworks Engineering & Worldwide Network Synchronisation. I am currently happily retired from the ‘world of work’ and spend my time between UK and Brunei.
1StopBorneo Wildlife is a wonderful NGO with a wonderful committed team of enthusiasts led by the most passionate advocate of wildlife and nature that I have ever known. I am proud to be part of the team. I work closely with Bud Chapman here in Brunei with Rescue and Rehabilitation and release of our native wildlife. It is such a satisfying feeling releasing an animal that can once again live wild and free in the junglewhere it belongs.
Aside fromwildlife, my interests are motoring (built my own sportscar), and badminton (played tournaments in many parts of the world).
Louise Fletcher, Commitee Members
I am a pangolin conservationist and my first role with pangolins was working on the release and monitoring of trade confiscated Sunda pangolins in Vietnam. Since then I have gone on to support the work of organisations in Brunei, Kalimantan and Sumatra.
Currently I am developing a project to support the use of trained dogs in Asian pangolin conservation which will look to train local conservationists across Asia on how to work with dogs.
I have also launched a pangolin art awareness campaign with youth organisation One More Generation which is in the process of being implemented across Asia and Africa. I am passionate about this work supporting local efforts in the conservation of their local fauna. ''
