Visit Malaysia Year Haiku - Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary (Sandakan, State Of Sabah) - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary
i stand aside to let one Orang Utan
to cross the plank walk

Sepilok Orang Utan feeding hours
after one orang utan, two, three macaques
take over the food

Orang Utan, the jungle man is a threatened species in Sabah, especially along the Kinabatangan floodplain. The Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary is where the animals are rehabilitated. A lot of work is also being done by World Wildlife Fund - Malaysia to reforestate their habitat which has been destroyed by clearings for oil palm plantations and logging.
