Wonders of the East - the butterflies of Malaysia DVD cover image

1998,  39 minutes

Showing over 120 species of the magnificent butterflies to be seen in Malaysia, from the islands to the north of the Peninsula to the forests of Borneo in the far south.

 

 Described by Sir David Attenborough as “a bewitching introduction to some of the loveliest inhabitants of the rainforest”, the film also describes the complex biogeographical background to Malaysia’s butterfly heritage, which was seriously threatened in 1999 by the smog generated by uncontrolled peat-bog fires in Indonesia.
