Seeing this Species

 

A large, semi-habituated group lives in Bako National Park. The park's extensive boardwalk and large swaths of beaches makes for spectacular primate viewing. If possible, visit at low tide and watch the proboscis wander through the surreal world of mangroves out of water.

 

The park is an easy trip from the Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia.
