Join Wayne Sentman, Director of Conservation Travel Programs at the Oceanic Society, on an exploration of the outstanding terrestrial wilderness of Malaysian Borneo, including the "Big 5"—the Pygmy Elephant, Orangutan, Proboscis Monkey, crocodiles, and Rhinoceros Hornbill.

Often overlooked by nature travelers, Borneo's forests harbor exceptionally high levels of diversity and endemism, including many rare and unique species. During the presentation we'll "visit" Sepilok, home to the Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre and the Sun Bear Conservation Center. We'll then relocate to the jungle and the winding Kinabatangan River.

We'll end our journey in Danum Valley Conservation Area, which consists of 43,800 hectares of protected lowland rainforest and is home to an astonishing variety of plants and wildlife.
