Pygmy Elephants and Orang-utans in Borneo can be saved

"I began wondering if the animals, like some of the guides, were 'Goodies' fans, keen Times readers, or followers of fashion?" Supporter Nicola Davies joined Bill Oddie, Simon Barnes and Astrid Munoz to see the fantastic wildlife that WLT is saving in Malaysian Borneo. Help us save new parcels of forest for these animals in the Kinabatangan floodplain.
