( Indonesian Borneo )


FLORA

The flora and fauna of Kalimantan’s montane and lowland forests is amazing and each is an important genetic resource and wildlife habitat.  The "green gold" exploitation that began in the late 1960s has destroyed more then half its forests, but a turning point is in process. Now the Indonesian government and the local people understand the beauty and wealth of Kalimantan's tropical forests and efforts are being made to preserve them.
Kalimantan’s coastline features mangrove swamps and lowland rainforest. An inland belt of gentle hills and alluvial plains mark the start of the deep jungle. Towering Dipterocarpus trees, valuable ebony, and ironwood trees are scattered throughout. More then a half of the world’s hardwood tree species are here. Climbing rattan palms, vines, orchids, ferns, and pitcher plants are also common.

WILDLIFE

The wildlife is exotic and unusually diverse, with orangutans only found on Sumatra and Borneo Islands, along with the endemic proboscis monkeys, and other forest denizens including Malaysian sun bears, clouded leopards, leaf monkeys, macaques, and pangolins. Many lizard varieties and pythons live in Kalimantan’s jungles,while crocodiles and the last freshwater dolphins on earth ply the rivers.
More then 600 bird species make the Kalimantan forests their home, such as the sun birds, pheasants, cockatoos, and spectacular hornbills. Also many kinds of beautiful butterflies and metallic beetles, color this world, along poisonous polypods, brightly colored millipedes, and giant walking sticks.

Wildlife spotting opportunities are the best in the heart of Kalimantan or in the national parks or nature reserves. While seeing creatures in the wild is never guaranteed, visitors can at least get a glimpse of their habitats and experience their environment while waiting to see a rare animal or birds.
