Being in Malaysia and seeing so much jungle it is overwhelming to me. Ok I planned it to be like this but that so many of the things came out the way they did, it is fantastic. And yes there is a down side as well. Malaysia is filled with oil palm plantations. When you moving to another place by bus or plane you can see them every where. And they have taken over huge portions of the landscape. In the old days these were jungle as well and with so many animals in there. And now you see oil palms as far as your eyes can reach. One tree copied over a million times. It is no good for the weather system. Because of the mono culture, the rainfall has dropped. And people are facing bigger and bigger dry spells. Also the plantations have changed the life of many and not always for the better. The money earned flows in the pockets of just a few people. Politicians and big companies. But for me All is fine I just take nap when we move along the plantation and then wake up to see the jungle again.
Kinabantangan, Mulu and Tamana Negara the big jungle places I have been. Are different from each other. Mulu and Tamana Negara are 1e category jungle and Kinabatangan 2e category. 1e Category is way more dense because of its age. Tamana Negara is the oldest jungle in Malaysia (over 200 years old) and Kinabatangan only 70 years.
After leaving Kinabatangan I went to Sepilok, Here I would be able to see the Orang Utans from up close and go to make some more walks in to the nature. In Sepilok there is a OrangUtan center her young ones are brought when there mothers are not around them any more. A the normal situation would be that a mother Orang Utan takes care of her child the first 7 years before the go out by them self. The Orang Utan center does great work but when you go there there are a lot of tourist during feeding time. Every body wants to take pictures and a lot of people are talking and making a lot of noise. But I am one of them, yes I know that.
