Forty years ago the interior of Borneo was a pristine, virgin rainforest inhabited by uncontacted indigenous tribes and naïve, virtually tame, wildlife. Robin Hanbury-Tenison will describe his experiences in this ‘Garden of Eden’ as the leader of one of the largest ever Royal Geographical Society expeditions. This extraordinary undertaking triggered the global rainforest movement and illuminated, for the first time, how vital rainforests are to our planet.
