这是我们第一个目的地，Bako National Park。
就先来个关于Bako国家公园的简介。 Bako国家公园是Sarawak最老的国家公园，成立和开放于1957。公园位于Muara Tebas半岛北端。涵盖2727公顷的区域。
At Bako it is possible to see almost every type of vegetation found in Borneo. 25 distinct types of vegetation form seven complete eco-systems - Beach Vegetation, Cliff Vegetation, Kerangas or Heath Forest, Mangrove Forest, Mixed Dipterocarp Forest, Padang or Grasslands Vegetation and Peat Swamp Forest.

Some fact about the Blackwater River & Heath forest :-
"A blackwater river is a river with a deep, slow-moving channel that flows through forested swamps and wetlands. As vegetation decays in the water, tannins are leached out, resulting in transparent, acidic water that is darkly stained, resembling tea or coffee. Blackwater rivers are much lower in nutrients than whitewater rivers and have ionic concentrations only slightly higher than rainwater . The unique water conditions lead to a composition of flora and fauna that differs significantly from that found in whitewater sources." - wikipedia.
"Heath forest is a type of tropical moist forest found in areas with acidic, sandy soils that are extremely nutrient-poor. Also known as Kerangas forest, a type of tropical moist forest found on the island of Borneo, The word Kerangas, which means "land which cannot grow rice", came from the Iban language. Heath forests occur on acidic sandy soils that are the result of the area's siliceous parent rocks. Permanently waterlogged heath forests are known as kerapah forests. The sandy soil of the heath forest are often lacking in nutrients; it is generally considered that nitrogen is the nutrient which is most lacking for plant growth in these forests. This is in contrast to many other lowland rain forests where phosphorus is considered to be lacking." - wikipedia.
