TANJUNG PUTING NATIONAL PARK

Tanjung Puting National Park is a national park in Indonesia famous for its orangutan conservation - although much of its half a million hectares is now degraded habitat.


This national park is in the southeast part of the West Kotawaringin Regency in the Indonesian province of Central Kalimantan (in Central Borneo). and the nearest towns are the regency capital of Pangkalan Bun and the harbour city of Kumai.


Borneo is second only to tropical rainforests in Amazonia, Brasil and the Congo in being a biodiversity hotspot and, although constantly threatened by corrupt officials colluding with illegal loggers together with other human population pressures such as trapping for the illegal pet trade.
