Borneo, the planet's third-largest island, harbors the oldest and tallest rain forests on Earth. Sheltered beneath their dense canopies are rivers, waterfalls and a host of wildlife that leaps, darts and crawls in the emerald jungle. Animal lovers come to look for endangered orangutans that thrive in the lush vegetation, but they are charmed by a natural treasure chest of unknown and exotic biodiversity. Join Brad Josephs for a virtual immersion in Borneo’s pristine rain forest, one of the most endangered on Earth. In addition to orangs, we meet leaf monkeys, wild gibbons, flying lemurs and more than 300 vibrant bird species. Rare proboscis monkeys are at home in coastal mangroves where hornbills and sea eagles soar overhead. On Selingan Island, tiny turtle hatchlings find their way to the ocean. Beneath Mount Kinabalu’s prominent peaks, pygmy elephants lumber through the forest while monitor lizards sunbathe on the banks of the Kinabatangan River. Wildlife flourishes in Borneo, and it provides a matchless nature adventure for tropical safari-goers.
