In Borneo, an imperiled Eden struggles to survive

Danum Valley is one of the very few places in Borneo that hasn't been severely logged, burned or overhunted.  As a result, wildlife abound there and it's among the biologically richest real estate anywhere on Earth.

In this article, I highlight the efforts of a dedicated band of international and Malaysian scientists to save this biological Eden--as the roar of encroaching bulldozers grows ever louder.
