Borneo: Biodiversity & Orangutans...and Bats!
Travel at its best! Join distinguished alumnus Dan Riskin, ’97 BSc, co-host of Discovery's science program, Daily Planet and Animal Planet's hugely successful Monsters Inside Me for an enriching voyage of discovery. This is a small group trip with only 14 alumni travellers. Borneo is one of the most exciting destinations on earth and its northern Sabah province is among the world’s last great wild places. Delve deep into some of the oldest forests on the planet, view a tremendous diversity of life and enjoy the camaraderie of travelling with like-minded passengers.
This outstanding experience will include stays in secluded rainforest lodges, travel by boat through virgin mangrove stands and a visit to the world-famous Gomantong Caves, home to millions of insect-eating bats and a source of great fascination. Our time ‘in the field’ will be complemented by evening presentations that give us insight into Borneo’s importance and provide context to our discoveries.
