Kinabatangan River, Borneo, Malaysia

Sabah, north Borneo, is home to an abundance of wildlife – some rare and indigenous to Borneo.  There are several areas throughout Sabah where this wildlife thrives.  The Sabah Wildlife Department has responsibility for “implementation and administration of the Sabah Wildlife Conservation Enactment, 1997”,  and this includes managing Sabah’s parks and protected areas.  The protected areas were introduced to preserve the natural heritage of Borneo, thus enabling species such as the proboscis to recover and thrive. This map illustrates the protected areas, including the River Kinabatangan  – home to the greatest concentration of Borneo’s wildlife.
