Top 5 Jungle Trails in Sabah
The Borneo rainforest is estimated to be an amazing 130 million years old, even older than the Amazon rainforest is presumed to be. In one 25 acre section of Bornean forest there has been 750 different species of trees recorded compared to only 700 species in the whole of North America. And with over 1600 known species of animals, birds, amphibians and reptiles it is little wonder people flock here from all over the world to experience this unique Eden-like paradise. It is a shame that with over 80% of Malaysia’s forests already cut down and replaced with oil palm, most of the countless undiscovered species here are being forced into extinction faster than we can identify them. Supporting Sabah tourism and visiting these jungle trails is a great way to make sure these areas remain protected and keep poachers and illegal loggers out.
