Wild About Borneo
Borneo: an island of unsurpassed biodiversity
by Donna Racheal
About the Book
The third largest island in the world, Borneo’s ‘old world’ rainforests are known to be some of the richest in the world and home to a great diversity of species, such as the Bornean Orang-utan, the Sumatran Rhinoceros, Bornean Pygmy Elephant, Malayan Sun-bear and the Bornean Clouded Leopard.
Considering the island's unsurpassed biodiversity—from orangutans and rhinoceroses to tiny mosses and beetles not yet discovered—and the rate at which its forests are being lost, Borneo's future may well be the most critical conservation issue on our planet.
New Zealand born, I have always held a passion for animals from an early age. After moving to Melbourne in the late '80's, I began to pursue my photographic career. To date I have self-published a series of books on Australian Wildlife, as well as children's stories. I currently run my own business, producing natural health care products for pets. I am fortunate to have set up permanent home in Victoria amongst the breath-taking beauty that is the Yarra Valley with my beloved animals.
