Borneo -land of the orang utan and seas of the coral triangle!

Posted by Alan on Jan 13, 2012 in Details of presentations | No Comments

Home to the oldest rainforest on earth , we went to the Danum Valley in Sabah to look for orangutan , flying frogs and flying geckos ! We saw first hand the devastation caused by the drive to grow more oil palm …………………and the incredible work of the Sepilok orangutan rehabilitation centre , supported by Orangutan Appeal UK.

The seas of the coral triangle have what is probably the greatest marine biodiversity in the world and yet destructive fishing methods are destroying huge tracts of coral . Come with me to see what brings divers from all over the world ….from the tiny pygmy seahorse to the enormous thresher sharks off Malapascua Island in the Philippines.
