Bagang is a traditional fishing structure for catching anchovy made of bamboo in Sabah, Borneo. A large fishing net is placed on the sea bottom and light is used to attract the fishes gathering above the net. When this looks promising the net is lifted to collect all the fishes trapped inside. The structure is very beautiful, floating on the sea like a sketch of a house, which I imagine holds the dreams of those who build them.

Pulau Selingan (is one of three island located 40 kilometers north of Sandakan in Sabah, east Malaysia. During the peak season (October) up to 50 turtles come ashore to lay eggs. Marine turtles have been around for 230 million years at least, but due to human activities they have been brought, over the past hundred years, to the brink of extinction.

The orangutans are the only exclusively Asian living genus of great ape. They are among the most intelligent primates and use a variety of sophisticated tools, also making sleeping nests each night from branches and foliage. They are generally not aggressive and live a mostly solitary life foraging for food. They are the largest living arboreal animals with longer arms than other great apes. Their hair is typically reddish-brown, instead of the brown or black hair typical of other great apes. In Sabah there is only one surviving species which is endangered: the Bornean Orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus)
