About Mangroves

Largest in Malaysia!

According to Sabah WWF, Sabah has the largest area of mangroves in the whole of Malaysia! Spanning over a whopping 232,000 hectares, Sabah’s beautiful mangroves are mostly located along the state’s east and southeast coast. Most are protected as Class V Mangrove Forest Reserves, or as Class 1 Protected or Class VI Virgin Jungle Forest Reserves. 

About Mangroves

They are survivors!

Mangroves develop special features to survive. Their handy root system gives them stability in soft mud. Their useful roots also serve as supplementary respiratory organs, allowing them to breathe underwater in the oxygen-depleted mud.

About Mangroves

They rely on freshwater!

Mangroves will die when they are deprived of freshwater. So it’s vital to ensure that the water from our rivers flows smoothly to protect our beloved mangroves.

About Proboscis Monkeys

The bigger the nose,
the better!

Male proboscis monkeys have an unusual way of attracting female primates. Their extravagant and enormous noses make them more desirable. According to National Geographic, their noses “create an echo chamber that amplifies the monkey’s call, impressing females and intimidating rival males”.

About Proboscis Monkeys

Locals call them ‘’Dutch Monkeys”

The proboscis monkeys are sometimes referred to as “Monyet Belanda” (which translates to Dutch Monkey in English) by the locals in Malaysia and Indonesia due to their perceived resemblance to the Dutchmen’s portly bellies and bulbous noses. These adorable primates also go by the local name “bekantan”. 

About Proboscis Monkeys

They probably swim better than you!

Proboscis monkeys are remarkable swimmers. When swimming underwater, they could go up to 20 metres! Their partially webbed toes and fingers allow them to escape predators and cross rivers to find food.

About Fireflies

The Bee-tles

Don’t be fooled by the name! Fireflies are not flies, they are beetles. So the next time you see them, just remember that famous rock band!

About Fireflies

You light me up my life!

Fireflies use light patterns as their language of love. Those flashes you see are usually emitted from males who are looking for females. If the feeling is mutual, the female would respond with a flash of her own. The male would then locate her and they would mate.

About Fireflies

Sometimes they eat each other!

Fireflies are primarily carnivorous. One of the female groups, the genus Photuris, would copy other fireflies’ light patterns to lure male victims. They would then attack the poor guy by sucking his blood and devouring his insides!
