Description:

This book describes the natural history of the proboscis monkey found on Malaysian Borneo. It presents novel research data on the species and also highlights some of the areas where urgent action is needed to safeguard the long-term survival of the species. Specific research priorities are also recommended, including long-term monitoring of population numbers and distribution, and more accurate habitat and land use classifications.

The book will also appeal to a wider audience as information of interest to the general public and the wildlife enthusiast is also included. From an eco-tourism point of view, the importance of the proboscis monkey as a flagship species cannot be underestimated, as it is an easily observable animal with high encounter rates in the wild. Useful information is also included on recommended places to observe the proboscis monkey, as well as guidelines for observing them so as to minimise disturbance and to promote sustainable tourism.
