 It is home or native habitat filled with biodiversity, a natural shelter for an extraordinary variety of wildlife, especially birds.

Hornbill borned with unique characteristics, then used as the philosophy of Dayak Bidayuh as the other one of indigenous people of Borneo.
 On the side of geological history, about the nature reserve, researchers explained that 40-20 million years ago there was a layer of sedimentary rock or limestone with a thickness of 1,500 m (4,900 ft).

 Geologically, the layer is formed from compressed sea shells, then developed in a structure created by coral reefs, then a shift in the tectonic plates of Asia and Australia caused the earth’s crust to bend and become high ground, called Borneo island.

Borneo was built from Pacific ring of fire activities, but it was far from the coordinates of the fourth tectonic plates line prone zone, that is Asia, Australia, the Indian Ocean and the Pacific as the ring of fire.
