Borneo peat swamp forests

WWF Abstract

Venture behind coastal mangrove forests and around certain lakes in Borneo, the Malaysian state of Sarawak, and Indonesian Kalimantan, and you may encounter a fascinating habitat known as peat swamp forests. Though not as species-rich as nearby lowland forests, these regions are home to many interesting animals, including gibbons, orangutans, and crocodiles. They're also the primary habitat of the proboscis monkey, which lives only in Borneo.
