The Seashore Life Of The Brunei Heart of Borneo
Since my last post on Adam, I have been reading on the Volume 1 – The Physical Environment from the Seashore Life Of The Heart of Borneo series. Page after page and I just couldn’t put the book down. There are seven more volumes to go, am sure going to enjoy my weekend reading these precious books on Brunei’s rich biodiversity.
In a nutshell, the booklets describe the range of species that inhibit Brunei’s seashore, the only place in Borneo where the Heart of Borneo rainforest extends uniterrupted from the mountains to the sea. The books were put up by members of the Panaga Natural History Society and sponsored by Brunei Shell Petroleum.
From the booklets website:
“Read these booklets and be inspired to get on the beach and do some beachcombing, and find out why Brunei is one of the best places in the world for the array of exotic nuts, seeds and shells washed up. Share your visit with the wildlife, the ever present patrols of crabs, migrating birds, and examine the fishermen’s catches.
Marvel at the variety of plant life that has adapted to the seashore environment, with their colour and texture and understand the climate: the seasons with their winds, tides and their effects on the beach.
Lastly, find out the effect of man, the dominant species, and the only one that can protect, nurture and conserve this wonderful heritage, or destroy it all.”
The booklets will be on sale at Br$5 each, available in bookstores in Brunei; where the authors hope that the books would be available even within the reach of the children’s pocket money. And yes, just five dollars and its worth reading them with so much interesting and thought-provoking facts on the species that inhibit Brunei’s seashore. And read this: all proceeds will go to the Heart of Borneo. Now’s your part.
