Borneo and Sumatra are the only places on Earth where tigers, rhinos, orangutans, and elephants live together. The forests are home to marvellous creatures like the proboscis monkey, sun bear, clouded leopard, and flying fox bat, and endangered animals like the Sumatran tiger, Sumatran rhino, and pygmy elephant.

Borneo is the world's third largest island and is home to an astonishing diversity of tropical life, including 688 bird species of which 59 are endemic, being found nowhere else. The island is shared by the three nations of Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei, with endemic species being concentrated in the Malaysian state of Sabah.
