jungle in borneo


Orang Utan means “man of the woods”. It lives solitary and swings from tree to tree eating leaves. Each Orang Utan needs a certain area. Since the 80ies the jungle is shrinking.

Mr. Aji spends his whole life for the monkeys. He drives tourists up and down the Kinabatangan River and walks with them into the jungle. He wants them to take pictures and spread the word. He teaches about nature, animals and plants. He reports the WWF the number of endangered species. He loves monkeys.

When you walk away from the river it takes only a few minutes and you will end up in a oil-palm plantation. From the river you can see the end. It is only a little belt of the healthy mixture of trees. The habitat is disappearing quickly.
