Just what extraordinary creatures are living in the Borneo rainforests? Join a team of Natural History Museum scientists on location as they survey the incredible diversity of insects and other invertebrates. Many of the species in this habitat are not yet known to science.

Researcher Dan Carpenter explains the different methods they use to sample the invertebrates living in the soil, on dead wood, and flying in the canopy.

Discover why it is important to know what is living where, and how the survey findings will help experts to plan the best conservation strategies to protect the forest’s unique biodiversity.
