Please see the following post from the Danau Girang Field Centre:

"This is with great sadness that DG family is announcing the passing of Dr Diana Angeles Ramirez Saldivar. She was our sister and our friend. She was a friend of Milena Salgado Lynn, and arrived in Sabah eight years ago, in August 2010 to work with the Wildlife Rescue Unit. During those eight years she gave everything to her job with WRU and worked tirelessly to support some of DGFC's projects, collaring elephants, clouded leopards, proboscis monkeys, crocodiles. While working full time to rescue and protect Sabah's wildlife, she was also doing her Master degree at Universiti Malaysia Sabah on proboscis monkeys' health. We do not know a more passionate and dedicated wildlife conservationist in Sabah than Diana! She fought many battles for the well-being of wildlife and captive animals in Sabah. Sabah must honour her contribution. She inspired many of us and she will always be remembered, she will always be in our hearts and we will continue her fight. Diana, we miss you!"
