On this wildlife conservation trip in Borneo, students have the chance to get up close with the region’s incredible wildlife. At the Sepilok Rehabilitaion Centre, they can witness the elusive orangutan in its natural habitat, and from a river boat cruise try to spot pygmy elephants, the proboscis monkey and estuarine crocodiles. Students will gain an understanding of the pioneering conservation taking place, and the diverse biology of the region’s flora and fauna. From the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kinabalu Park to the Tungog Rainforest Eco Camp, this will be an experience your group will always remember.
