Underwater Jungles – Sarawak
A journey through this heartland of biodiversity reveals that Sarawak has been twice blessed; once with its verdant jungles clambering with head hunters and orangutans and again with its secret underwater gardens shrouded in the mist of the Borneo Sea.
Created to enlighten the inhabitants of Sarawak of the beauty and riches of their seas in the hope that they may preserve it, this luxuriant book explores the underwater jungles, spirits and enigmas of the coral reefs of Miri.
Meandering through this flamboyant wonderland Michael Aw thrills the senses with his images of smiling fang blennies, underwater harps, bright red forests, curtains of fish, life beneath an oil rig, orange jelly nudibranchs and armed with HMI and black lights he even takes you for a boogie through a jungle disco and the ineffable beauty of fluorescent corals with their magical greens, blues, oranges and purples.
“The coral reefs of Miri, Sarawak, are a natural treasure for Sarawak, in fact they are a national treasure for all of Malaysia. These reefs are among the best and healthiest in the whole country of Malaysia.” Douglas Fenner, Ph.D. Australian Institute of Marine Science
