Illustrated with more than 350 images, taken by Bjorn Olesen and other wildlife photographers, A Visual Celebration of Borneo's Wildlife is a photographic tribute to the most spectacular wildlife species on the second-largest tropical island on Earth. It displays nature's beauty, revealing many private moments of the astonishing biodiversity of Borneo, where nature runs riot.

Based on the latest research, it is filled with captivating little-known facts about the wildlife that modern-day travelers may come across when visiting this enchanting island. It also describes the top 16 wildlife locations in Borneo, with a comprehensive list of recommended reading, websites and blogs provided.

All of the authors' royalties will be donated to Fauna & Flora International for nature conservation work in Southeast Asia.

"A Visual Celebration of Borneo's Wildlife is probably the most comprehensive photographic tribute to the natural wonders in Borneo that can still be experienced in many parts of the island. It makes a powerful case for a relook of the present conservation policies to preserve some of the world's most stunning biological treasures." -Bare Essentials Magazine

A Visual Celebration of Borneo's Wildlife is an embodiment of the wilds of Borneo, which still have so many places and species yet to be explored and discovered!" Henry Goh, President, Malaysian Nature Society"

"If the great Victorian naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace could have seen this astonishingly beautiful book he would no doubt have declared it the next best thing to exploring Borneo oneself. I have never seen a book on Asian wildlife that so powerfully takes one's breath away with the turn of every page." Dr. John van Wyhe, National University of Singapore, historian of science and leading expert on Alfred Wallace, author of Dispelling the Darkness: Voyage in the Malay Archipelago and the Discovery of Evolution by Wallace and Darwin"
