Tak Kenal Maka Tak Cinta Ep7: Kinabatangan River

Tak Kenal Maka Tak Cinta is our monthly tourism-themed series on Earth Matters, which aims to highlight lesser-known ecotourism spots right here in Malaysia. Done in collaboration with the Ecotourism & Conservation Society Malaysia (ECOMY), we want to take you back to the great outdoors, and experience the many off-the-beaten-track nature spots our country has to offer. For this episode, we're heading to Kinabatangan, in Sandakan, Sabah, specifically the Kinabatangan River. At 560 km long, the Kinabatangan River is Sabah’s longest river, and Malaysia’s second longest river. Whilst the upper reaches of the Kinabatangan River have been extensively logged, the lowland forest and mangroves have survived, and much of the lower Kinabatangan River is gazetted under the Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary. This vast floodplain forest supports a wide array of wildlife, from proboscis monkeys to Irrawaddy dolphins, and also a variety of other birds. Taking us cruising today is our intrepid guide on this series, Andrew Sebastian, the Founder & Chief Executive Officer of ECOMY.
