Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre, which is located in the 43 square kilometers Sepilok Kapilee Forest Reserve, Sandakan. Abandoned or homeless endangered orangutans are sent to the center to be treated and taught the apes' survival skills and lifestyle by the reserve managers. Until a certain age, the reserve managers will send the orangutans back to nature. The deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of the orangutan is about 96.4% similar to that of humans, and it is a rare protected animal. The center also has an information center and a video room about the establishment of the center and explanations of orangutans.
Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary, located near the mangroves in Sumawang village, is perhaps the only private sanctuary in the world. Originally, it was planned to develop and plant oil palm trees here, but the owner of the park suddenly discovered that this is the habitat of proboscis monkeys, so he decided to stop cutting down the wet mangrove area, and set up a proboscis monkey sanctuary center to take care of the proboscis monkeys. Protect these remaining proboscis monkeys and let the proboscis monkeys continue to reproduce. Visitors can best see them up close during feeding time. Lunch at Sibilo Forest Resort.
The Sun Bear Conservation Center was established in 2008. The first founder, Huang Xiude, is a biologist who studies sun bears. The center has the same goal as the Orangutan Rehabilitation Center to protect the rare protected species of the sun bear. In 2013, the number of shelters was as high as about 28 sun bears, most of which were rescued from the harsh environment.
The Rainforest Discovery Center (RDC) in Sepilok, Sandakan, is part of the Kabili-Sepilok Forest Reserve. There is a large lake in the Tropical Rainforest Discovery Center. There is a suspension bridge in the middle of the lake connecting the two sides. There are many paths and towers around the lake, allowing tourists to enjoy the surrounding scenery. This mysterious forest area is home to one of the rarest birds in Sabah, the Borneon Bristlehead, as well as 250 other species of birds such as hornbills, broadbills, pittas, kingfishers, etc. It is a paradise for bird lovers. Walking on the trail at night, you have the opportunity to see other wild animals, such as mouse deer, dexterous civet cats, cute tarsiers, various insects and perching birds. The center also has a botanical garden with about 250 species of native orchids and other plants in bloom, as well as an information room with rich information on tropical rainforests and more.
