Read an Excerpt

'Borneo's natural wonders are undoubtedly its greatest and most famous asset. As a 'biodiversity hotspot', its variety and richness of life is unparalleled. Just 10ha of Bornean rainforest can support 700 species of tree – as many as are found across the whole of North America. The island is home to as many bird species as Europe and as many mammals as Australia, including Asia's only great ape, the orangutan. Over 5,000 of Borneo's plant species are not found anywhere else in the world, and500 animal species are unique to the island.'
