The little-known, forest wetland ecosystems of Danau Mesangat in eastern Borneo (Indonesia) are extremely rich in biodiversity. They include some of Southeast Asia’s most threatened wildlife. Pride of place of Mesangat Wetlands is the False Gharial, a shy, specialised crocodile of peat and freshwater swamp forest. The False Gharial shares its home with other charismatic wildlife, including the Storm’s Stork, Malaysian Giant Turtle and Proboscis Monkey.

In this online talk, renown herpetologist and conservationist Rob Stuebing will share with us the biodiversity of Danau Mesangat, with special focus on its two crocodile species and the Storm’s Stork. He will also discuss the conservation efforts led by Indonesian conservation group, Yayasan Ulin.
