Sumatran freshwater swamp forests

WWF Abstract

Make your way through the soggy soils of the Sumatra Freshwater Swamp Forests and you'll encounter an extraordinary diversity of life. Asian elephants, monitor lizards, whistling ducks, and Malayan tapirs are just a few of the animals found in these wet forest habitats. Unfortunately, their home is extremely threatened and may be entirely gone within ten years.
