HEART OF BORNEO – Forest

Borneo contains one of the oldest rainforests and is a biodiversity hotspot in the world. The Heart of Borneo is a transboundary cooperation between the countries of Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei, and covers a 22-million hectare landscape of conservation and sustainable use areas. It is one of WWF’s global priority conservation areas and home to a diverse wildlife assemblage that include Bornean endemics such as the proboscis monkey, orangutan and elephant. The landscape is also important for the socio and economic well-being of the local and indigenous people. To maintain a harmonious relationship between the people and nature, it is crucial to sustainably manage the forests and land.
