About

This program will give students first-hand exposure to the unparalleled biodiversity of S.E. Asian forest and marine environments on and around the magical island of Borneo. Borneo is among the world’s largest islands and is extraordinarily rich in charismatic endemic species, and a host of other stunning natural attractions such as Mt. Kinabalu, the highest peak in S.E. Asia; among the largest bat caves in the world; and the megadiverse coral reefs of the Indian Ocean, home of the whale shark.

Highlights of the program may include biodiversity sampling that will allow students to explore and test biogeographical hypotheses. Students will study the biological and geological processes that have led to the evolution of these patterns. Highlights of the program include observing monkeys, gibbons, tarsiers, and orangutans; many species of hornbills, parrots, and owls; the chance to see the endangered Bornean pygmy elephant, the world’s largest flower Rafflesia, and many nocturnal mammals; and snorkeling in the world’s most diverse and pristine coral reefs.
