Teeming with wildlife, the rainforests of Malaysian Borneo are some of the oldest in the world and contain a vast wealth of endemic species. Malaysian Borneo is home to the Bornean Pygmy Elephant, 10 species of primate including the Bornean Orang-utan and Proboscis Monkey, and more than 600 species of birds, eight of them belonging to the hornbill family. Much of the natural habitat is at risk from intense logging, palm oil plantations and forest fires.
