Description

Tropical mangroves are a rich repository of numerous species of trees and other plants as well as being an essential part of nature's erosion prevention and filtration system, particularly vital in ensuring the continued health of coral offshore. But they are perhaps most well-known for harboring an interesting selection of wildlife, such as mangrove cat snakes, crocodiles, monitor lizards and perhaps the most curious of all, the proboscis monkey. Endemic only to certain parts of Borneo, these monkeys became known for their bright orange brownish coats, long white tails, and the protruding noses on the adult males. Head into the mangrove wilderness in an open boat for an adventure to spot these, and perhaps even more.
