Tabin is blessed with biodiversity that makes the African savannah seem mild by comparison. A vast array of plants and animals is out there but in order to see them we must re-awaken our hunting-gathering hearts; we must hone our skills of observation; we must learn from experienced jungle observers; and we must make cautious, intelligent trial-and-error forays into actual habitats.
To learn and develop jungle skills is well worth the effort. It gets you in touch with your true essence as a human being; as a person descended from ancestors who survived on such skills for most of our history as a species. Tabin is one of the few places left on our planet where we can truly seek and find this essence.
Every observant visitor who ventures into Tabin habitats is a true explorer. The biodiversity is so great and the amount of scientific or observational activity has been so slight in Tabin that much remains to be discovered. Many species remain to be added to the “seen in Tabin” lists presented in this guide. Perhaps there are species as yet unknown to science that are also awaiting discovery.
So lets get into that jungle, lets learn and lets enjoy Tabin habitats on their own terms.
