At 560 km, the Kinabatangan is the second longest river in Malaysia and the longest in the state of Sabah. Although the forest on the lower Kinabatangan floodplain is severely degraded and encroached upon by oil palm plantations, it remains one of the best places to observe wildlife.
John Steed will talk about his recent birding experience there, where proboscis monkeys, pygmy elephants and orang-utans roam free, together with a great variety of birds, including several endemics.
The talk will be accompanied by a slideshow which depicts a sample of what can be seen.
Venue: MNS HQ Auditorium, Jalan Kelantan
Time: 8.00 p.m.
Attendance is FOC. All are welcome.
