BelagaOne: A Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary in North Kalimantan, Indonesia

January 31, 2021, 05.08 AM

“A number of travel communities also reported that poachers shot and hunted [proboscis monkeys] for human consumption, while others bore a grudge against the primates for damaging property."

Syafaruddin added that his office will continue to develop BelagaOne.

“I hope we can formalize BelagaOne as a tourist site by setting an entrance fee and building a 800 meter wooden bridge.”

To date, there are more than 20 thousand proboscis monkeys in Borneo. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature or IUCN listed the proboscis monkey as an endangered species after their numbers were reduced by half over the past 40 years.
