Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary
Opened to the public in 2000, Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary offers a safe haven for the indigenous wildlife isolated by the Sulu Sea to the north and encroaching palm oil plantations to the south.
As trees withered and fresh water sources dried up during the 97-98 El Nino drought and palm oil development closed in, the desperate monkeys found an unlikely source of comfort - pancakes and coffee from the pantry of the nearby Lee Brothers’ plantation. Moved by the monkey’s plight, the Lee Brothers began to enact a simple feeding programme to supplement the monkey’s diet and eventually converted part of their land holdings into Sabah’s first Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary.
Over the years, the sanctuary has been expanded to 500 acres of coastal mangrove forests via land acquisition, and the restoration of degraded forests. Labuk Bay currently houses one of the largest isolated population of proboscis monkeys on the Borneo islands (ca. 300), along with other wildlife such as Silvered-Leaf Langurs and Oriental-Pied Hornbills.

The results of these threats has caused young sun bears found to be living in unnatural captive conditions in Sabah, with no access to outdoor areas. There are currently 42 rescued ex-captive sun bears residing at the BSBCC. The facility includes large forest enclosures to provide a natural environment suited to the needs and welfare of the sun bears and facilitate their rehabilitation back into the wild. In 2014, the Centre opened to the public. Visitors can learn about sun bears and observe them in their natural habitat.
The Semenggoh Wildlife Centre, Kuching
Just 20 kilometers south of Kuching, there is a natural habitat which acts as a home to Orangutans. The Semenggoh Wildlife Centre of Semenggoh Nature Reserve is by far the biggest Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre in Sarawak. Back in 1975, it was established as a sanctuary for Orangutans who are injured, orphaned or being kept captive as illegal pets. Currently, the centre serves as a habitat for the Orangutans and also a place for visitors to learn about the endangered rare species. This wildlife centre has a thriving population of healthy adolescent and young adult semi-wild Orangutans. They spend most of their time roaming the forest but are trained to get back to the centre during feeding times where they will be able to get a free meal from the caretakers.
