Saving Paradise: The Story of Sukau Rainforest Lodge is the story of the conception, construction and operation of a Borneo ecolodge. Told in the words of lodge founder, Albert Teo, his staff and visitors, it could serve as a handbook for anyone attempting to develop a business with minimal environmental impact; but it is also a colourful travelogue for the region and its unique flora and wildlife including the improbable proboscis monkey and the endangered pygmy elephant. Travelers planning a trip to Southeast Asia will find Saving Paradise great reading and a helpful planning tool. The book will make them aware of the intimate experiences they can expect at an ecolodge while showing how their travel dollars can support conservation while they enjoy the time of their lives!
