"Sepilok Forest" - a new book for 2013!

Sepilok’s renowned Orang-utan Rehabilitation Centre has long attracted visitors, not just from Malaysia but from around the world. The establishment of the Rainforest Discovery Centre at the edge of the forest reserve and the construction of its canopy walkways and viewing towers have made Sepilok one of Sabah’s hot spots for bird watching in recent years. A network of trails through the rainforest, a Plant Discovery garden and other facilities attract increasing numbers of visitors, making the Rainforest Discovery Centre one of the prime locations in Malaysia for environmental education as well as for recreation.

In addition to these well known areas, the Sepilok Forest offers many more places of interest, including a Sun Bear Conservation Centre recently set up to protect the world’s smallest bear. Visitors can also explore the intriguing mangroves at the edge of Sandakan Bay, where the upgraded Sepilok Mangrove Discovery Centre offers a new 700-metre boardwalk through the forest. The Sepilok Forest also offers a number of information centres and small museums including the Exhibition Hall at the Rainforest Discovery Centre; the Forest Insect Museum and the Sandakan Herbarium at the Forest Research Centre and a new forest garden due to open in the near future.
This beautifully illustrated book is intended to introduce visitors to the many different aspects of the Sepilok Forest, and to enhance their enjoyment of the wide range of activities. I would like to congratulate the author, Wendy Hutton, and photographer, Cede Prudente, for their fine presentation of the varied and beautiful Sepilok Forest, which the Forestry Department is proud to be playing a vital role in conserving.
