The Heart of Borneo (60')

There are still large regions of virgin rain forest on Borneo, the world's third-largest island - the perfect habitat for Orang-Utans and Sun Bears, Long-Nosed Monkeys and Pygmy Elephants. The WWF project Heart of Borneo aims to secure the habitat for these rare and endangered species - in the face of grave threats and problems.

The pygmy elephants of Borneo spend their days hiding in the dense jungles, seeking shelter from the tropical sun and heat. The largest variety of nourishment can be found under the green tropical canopy as well. However, their daily wanderings in search of fresh greens are increasingly interrupted - by giant palm oil plantations, which are growing daily as Borneo's rain forest shrinks by the size of 4,000 football fields every day.

An adult Orang-Utan requires five square kilometres of habitat to survive, an area that is being destroyed every few hours on Borneo. Small wonder the Orang-Utan population is shrinking at an equally dramatic pace: Only approx. 50,000 animals now remain. Every year, around 1,000 perish due to the encroachment of mankind on their jungle home.
