Matang Wildlife Center is located in Kubah National Park, Sarawak’s main center for wildlife rehabilitation. This center is responsible for rescuing and helping a wide variety of animals back into the wild. Ranging from orang utan and sun bears to hornbills and sea eagles all of which can be view in natural enclosures in a rainforest setting.
The rescued animals being rehabilitated here include orang utan, sun bears, bear cats, civet cats, sambar deer, barking deer, porcupines and crocodiles, all of which can be viewed in spacious natural enclosures. A large aviary houses a variety of hornbills, as well as brahminy kites and sea eagles.
