Wild Sabah is a magnificent photographic evocation of the natural splendours of the state of Sabah in Malaysian Borneo. From the peaks of Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain in Asia between the Himalayas and New Guinea, to the floodplains of the Kinabatangan River, Sabah teems with wildlife, and the natural history of the region is described with verve and passionate enthusiasm by expert author Junaidi Payne. Landscapes, scenery and natural species are portrayed in Cede Prudente’s spectacular accompanying photographs. Three maps show physical terrain, climate, vegetation and the principal wildlife watching sites.
Junaidi Payne has spent the last 21 years living in Sabah, where he works for the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). He is thus uniquely placed to describe from first-hand experience in the field the wildlife of Sabah and its current status. He is especially interested in the ecology and conservation of the region, and in the great rainforests of Borneo. His previous publications include scientific papers and a number of popular reference books, including Wild Malaysia and This is Borneo.
Cede Prudente is a professional conservationist and photographer. Born in Lahan Datu, Malaysia, Cede dates his passion for nature to 1990, when he began leading tours to see the wildlife of the Kinabatangan. His continuous support of nature conservation gave him the opportunity to lead Partners for Wetlands, a project initiated by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
