 This time, I could have an opportunity to observe an inhabiting situation around the woody mountains and the mammals, the birds which is using them by the trekking in Maliau Basin Conservation Area. Concretely I took many pictures of trees and plants, and measured and noted them. I could record the voice of Bornean gibbons, hornbills and insects in the recorder and the video. Especially, it is very interesting field for me to study the wild orangutans because a lot of dipterocarps were spreading in this conservation area, however, we could not find the sort of dipterocarps and other fruits for orangutans and other primates except long-tailed macaque in Maliau Barea. Another day we visited the Proboscis monkey colony in the Clears River in the west of Kota Kinabalu. We could watch many sized Proboscis monkeys, gibbons and a monitor lizard there. Therefore, we could observe the fireflies on the river after the sunset.In conclusion we could take part in the conservation workshop hosted by the Yayasan Sabah in Kota Kinabaru, it was possible to have done the exchange of views of the lively preservation activity.
