This  “single rope bridge” was built  by Hutan (an orangutan conservation organization) across the Sungei Resang. The bridge allows primates to cross the river to prevent them being isolated by  the development of nearby oil palm plantations.

Lesser Fish Eagle  Ichthyophaga humilis. Three different species of large fish eagle  are all common along the Kinabatangan  River indicating an abundance of fish. The main reason that fish are so common is the abundance of figs  especially Ficus racemosa that drop ripe figs into the water.
