Our holidays to Borneo practice responsible tourism. As a company we believe that wildlife tourism has an increasingly key role in raising awareness and promoting conservation and we support a number of wildlife projects in Borneo.
Long ago, the world catered for such beautiful species as the orangutan, proboscis monkey and sun bear, with vast areas of pristine rainforest rich in biodiversity. Now over half of this unique habitat has disappeared, taking the majority of these helpless creatures with it. In the last decade alone, orangutans have decreased by 50% as their forest home is depleted at a rate that is too quick to replace or protect, and unfortunately only 2% of what remains of this habitat is protected.
Although climate change is one reason that things have changed, the main cause of the rapid decline of these species is due to mankind.
