It started with a civet blog to raise awareness of our last wild urban carnivore and for a long time, we talked about the possibility of having another platform to share news and photos of civets in Singapore and sometimes from our neighbouring countries.
At the start of October 2012, we are proud to announce the Common Palm Civets of Singapore Facebook page! This is courtesy of Genevieve Yeo, who is currently studying the civet population at Portsdown. With this Facebook page, we hope to encourage the public who have seen civets in their backyards or around their neighbourhood to share their photos and sighting records.
If you wish to follow up on civet news and research findings, just LIKE the page and you will receive the latest news and blog updates on your Facebook wall. Please feel free to share this news with your friends!
Lastly, we want to share with you a beautiful photo of a Portsdown civet taken by David Wells at 8am in the morning. Even though civets are mainly nocturnal, they have been known to be active at dusk and dawn. Just like this sighting, every new sighting or photo could reveal new information, as we have yet to learn all the secrets of this masked bandit!
