So, if there’s anything you should consider doing while in Borneo, I think it’s gonna be to see orangutans. According to this article, there are only two places left in the world where orangutans can be found in the wild, and it is only in the northern parts of Sumatra in Indonesia or throughout the island of Borneo.
