Peninsular Malaysian montane rain forests

WWF Abstract

Some of the most important refuges for wildlife around the world are montane regions where humans have had less impact and much wild land remains. Such is the case with the Peninsular Malaysia Montane Rain Forests. As you climb out of the lowland areas and up into the high mountain forests, you'll discover fewer signs of humans and large blocks of intact forest. Among the many animals that have found refuge in these forests are endangered tigers, elephants, clouded leopards, and rare sun bears.
