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.

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)

The Danum Valley Conservation Area is a 438 square kilometres tract of relatively undisturbed lowland dipterocarp forest in Sabah, Malaysia. The area holds unique status in the sense that before it became a conservation area there were no human settlements within the area, meaning that hunting, logging and other human interference was non existent making the area almost unique.
