Join Bryn Martin for yet another fabulous Washtenaw Audubon international field trip, to Borneo, the third largest island in the world, and home to one of Earth’s oldest rainforests. With 688 species of birds, including 59 endemics, and such interesting mammals as Orangutan, Proboscis Monkey, and Bornean Gibbon, expect great diversity in wildlife.

Bryn Martin is an avid international birder, Washtenaw Audubon’s field trip coordinator, and teaches high school in Livonia.
