The Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary is located on the east coast of the Malaysian state of Sabah in Borneo. It is one of the richest ecosystems on earth, with shallow freshwater lakes, open swamps, and forests, dotted with sandstone and limestone hills. Large areas are periodically flooded during the rainy season. The range of biodiversity in the Lower Kinabatangan surpasses that of every other site in Malaysia.

The range of biodiversity in the Lower Kinabatangan surpasses that of every other site in Malaysia. From Orangutans, probosci's monkeys, Sabah pygmy elephants, to the almost extinct Sumatran rhino, and all eight species of hornbill in Borneo. Deforestation was a major threat.

During this trip, you will experience first hand the habitat restoration along the Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary where flora and fauna are abundant. We can explain the various vegetations and animals that we see along the way.

We will travel by boat along the majestic Kinabatangan River (catch a glimpse of some wildlife along the way) to our reforestation site. There, we will work together to plant trees that have been specially chosen based on the type of soil and trees surrounding the area. If you're lucky, you will be able to hear some monkeys high up in the tree or see signs of animals that have been using the area.

You will be leaving a positive impact by connecting existing patches of the forest into one long corridor. As a memory of this experience and your effort in making this happen, you will receive the GPS coordinates of the trees that you have planted.

Maybe, one day, you will return and see 'your trees' full of life.
