Borneo rainforest. Photo by Rhett A. Butler
For the month of December, I’ll be posting some of my favorite pictures from 2012. All of these photos were taken during the course of my reporting travels.
Lowland rainforest in Sabah, on the island of Borneo. Most of Borneo’s old-growth lowland rainforests have been destroyed since 1980. Most of the remaining forest in the lowland has been selectively logged, cleared, or converted for agriculture and plantations.
