Phobaeticus Chani, a newly discovered stick insect in Borneo jungle

A Phobaeticus Chani, a stick insect which is more than half a metre long, one of dozens of new species recently discovered in a stretch of "irreplaceable" rainforest on the island of Borneo

I also have to introduce little Noah, the gibbon and to recommend that you check out his amazing story at Chanee's blog.

Chanee Kalaweit is the remarkable man that runs the Gibbon sanctuary in Borneo

He is supported by the Brigitte Bardot animal foundation to name but a few but the gibbon sanctuary needs all the support they can get.

It's an uplifting story of successful conservation, through one man's determination and commitment.
