About this book

Malaysia is one of the world's greatest ecotourism destinations, renowned for both the beauty of its many varied landscapes and for the great diversity of its wildlife. From the dramatic highlands of Mt Kinabalu and the extraordinary caves of Gunung Mulu to the pristine rainforests of Taman Negara and the golden beaches of Langkawi, this is a country of breathtaking scenery and ecological interest.

In this revised and updated new edition, author Junaidi Payne looks at the many landscapes and ecosystems found in Peninsular Malaysia, Sarawak and Sabah, and examines the vast range of wildlife species each habitat supports, including iconic species such as the Asian Elephant, Tiger and Orang-utan. A section on wildlife conservation looks at the challenges that lay ahead if the landscapes and wildlife wealth of Malaysia is to be secured for future generations. Supported by WWF Malaysia, and with over 200 spectacular colour photographs, this book is a celebration of Malaysia's natural heritage.
