We visited Selingaan Island  by boat from Sandakan on 20  July 2023  for an overnight stay to see nesting Green Turtles.

We found that the island  vegetation was dominated by numerous very large fig trees including Ficus microcarpa (most common), Ficus virens (at least two large trees and probably several more smaller trees), and Ficus drupacea (at least one large tree).  Both the Ficus drupacea and  the largest Ficus virens were fruiting during our visit. We only saw Glossy Starlings and Yellow-vented Bulbuls feeding  in the canopy.  However,  Megapodes  were common and seen feeding on the fallen figs..
