Sir David Attenborough, a renowned British naturalist will be filming Sabah’s wildlife for the second time. He was in Sabah 40 years ago, filming bats at the Gomantong caves.
Attenborough, a documentary maker, will be making his way to Sabah for a month with a crew of 44 people to film flying creatures in three dimensional formats in Sabah’s Lost World, the Danum Valley and Gomantong Caves. The shots will be used for a documentary called Conquest of the Skies and will be released in the United Kingdom in December. The release in other countries will follow later on.
“We are making a story about how insects and animals with bones have evolved to fly. There are more examples of the interesting flying creatures in Borneo than anywhere else in the world,” Attenborough said.
“There are all sorts of flying reptiles such as frogs and snakes and then there is the flying lemur. This land is rich in wonders.”
