Western Java montane rain forests

WWF Abstract

Although the mountains of Java are steep and the terrain is difficult, human activity has increasingly threatened the montane rain forests here. As a result, endangered primates such as the Javan leaf monkey and the Javan gibbon are struggling to survive. Covering the central western mountains of the island of Java, these dense rain forests host a great diversity of species, and the abundant rainfall and humidity encourage a thick mat of orchids, bromeliads, and moss to grow on tree branches and trunks.
