Flora and Fauna


More than 90% of Danum Valley conservation area is covered by lowland forest with the canopy reaching a height of over 70 metres in places. The balance comprises small crown: very dense, low canopy, sub-montane forests at higher elevations.  The largest area of this forest type is found on Mount Danum in the centre of DVCA.




At higher elevations the flora is quite different. On the upper slopes of Mount Danum the forest canopy seldom exceeds 25m and includes the gymnosperms Phylocladus and Podocarpus spp. Nepenthes are common at higher elevations as well as many species of orchid and a recently described climbing bamboo, Racemobambos pairinii.


Research efforts in Danum have revealed a tremendous variety of plants and a full range of Sabah’s lowland fauna, including such rare and endangered species as the Sumatran Rhino, Banteng (tembadau), Asian Elephant, Clouded Leopard, Orang utan, Proboscis Monkey, Western Tarsier, Flying Lemur, Leopard Cat, Bearded Pig, Malay Civet, Long-tailed Macaque, Slow Loris, Clouded Leopard, Giant Flying Squirrel, Lain Pygmy Squirrel, Malayan Sun Bear, Smooth Otter,  Silvered Langur and five species of deer including the Yellow Barking Deer, the Mouse Deer, and the Sambar Deer.




More than 120 mammals including 10 species of primates, 40 species of fishes, over 300 species of birds, reptiles, amphibians, a profusion of butterflies, thousands of insects, worms, other mollusks and invertebrates are found here.


Over 300 bird species have been recorded so far at Danum, including the Argus Pheasant, Bulwer's Pheasant, seven species of Pitta (including the rare Giant Pitta), the Borneo Bristlehead, a rich fauna of babblers, bulbuls and flycatchers, and all of the 7 species of hornbill found on Borneo.
