In the Shadow of Orangutan

This 360 degree video from Borneo Adventure takes viewers on a journey to Batang Ai in Sarawak to search for orangutans in the wild. Amongst other things, the film highlights the unique relationship between the Iban people and the endangered orangutans. Currently Sarawak’s population of wild orangutans is estimated at 1,600 with 95% living in the Batang Ai - Lanjak Entimau region.

The film follows guide Paul Matthew on one of Borneo Adventure's orangutan treks in this part of Malaysian Borneo.

360-degree videos let you look around your environment, so pay attention to what’s sneaking up behind you.

In a web browser you can simply click and drag the video around. On a mobile phone you can look around by moving your phone. In a VR visor, just turn your head. With the visor, sometimes it’s best if you have a swivel chair and a few feet of clearance in the real world.

As always, if you start to feel dizzy or nauseous, take off the visor and take a break.
