Borneo means many things to many people. 
 
To some, Borneo brings to mind a beautiful rainforest, rich in biodiversity. To others it conjures up a place rich in cultural diversity and traditional knowledge. Borneo leaves a deep impact on all those who have had the opportunity to visit, to explore, or to make their homes there. 
 
Below you’ll find stories and photographs from Borneo Project members whose lives have been shaped by the incredible people and the incredible natural beauty of Borneo.
