The Kinabatangan Wetlands is an important conservation area for a large number of animals. This wetlands sanctuary, centred on the Kinabatangan River, is home to clouded leopards, Asian elephants, civet cats, otters, hornbills, egrets, hawks and many more. This place is also the area with the highest concentration of primates in the whole of Borneo with ten species of monkeys and apes. Of particular note is the Proboscis monkey, a unique monkey with a stump for a nose and found nowhere else in the world but in Borneo. There are also many lakes in the area which are rich in fish and prawns; perfect for fishing.
