Knowledge is power. Understanding our environment, how nature works, and exploring wildlife habitats are keys to preserving the wonderful world that we know. Hopefully with this knowledge we are able to preserve and pass down the great experience of nature to our future generations. Green Connection at Kota Kinabalu is just the place to learn, as well as to promote the awareness of the nature habitats and wildlife conservation. Visitors will also have a chance to feel and touch some of the marine life and reptiles.
Kinabatangan river, with a length of 560km, is the longest river in Sabah. It stretches, from the interior of Sabah all the way to its river mouth which opens out to the Celebes sea. The river runs eastward most of the time. The floodplain of Kinabatagan, the largest in Malaysia, is a refuge to the many wildlife in Sabah, as most parts of Kinabatangan forests have been converted to palm oil plantations. These small corridor of riverine forests are all but the only place left for the wildlife to move around. WWF, a conservation organisation, reckons this is one of the two places on earth where one can watch 10 primate species at a single place, some of these animals like Proboscis monkey and the Borneo Pygmy Elephants are endemic to the Borneo Island. Lonely planet guide book even mentions that Kinabatangan area is Malaysia's gift to the world for its wildlife and nature. This is of no surprise that in 1920 the Johnson family from Kansas, USA came to Kinabatangan, North Borneo (now Sabah), to document and film the wildlife and native people.
