The oldest national park in the Malaysian state of Sarawak is Bako National Park, established in 1957. Located in the west part of the state, northeast of the city of Kuching, this protected area covers 27 square kilometers. In this relatively small area, it is possible to find all plant species that grow on the island of Borneo, and among them, carnivorous plants stand out. This is home to a colony of about 150 endangered probosci monkeys, and there are other primates, ungulates, and reptiles. There are about 150 species of birds, so the park is especially famous among ornithological enthusiasts.
