Sumatran montane rain forests

WWF Abstract

Visit the Sumatra Montane Rain Forests and you'll have a chance to see some of the largest--and most endangered--creatures in all of Asia. Sumatran rhinos, Malayan tapirs, and Asian elephants browse in the understory, tigers stalk unsuspecting prey, and orangutans clamber up the trees in search of food and shelter. This ecoregion also supports incredible plant and bird life, making it one of the most outstanding examples of montane rain forests in Asia.
