The park itself has already been honoured with the recognition as one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Site. For a site to be granted this status, it must satisfy at least one of four criteria. Mulu fulfilled all four criterias making it one of the select few sites in the world to do so.
The UNESCO report on the assessment of Gunung Mulu National Park as a World Heritage Area said that Mulu protects a substantial area “containing a high diversity of biota including many Bornean endemics and threatened species”. The park is also acknowledged to have a large number of cave passages and chambers including the Sarawak Chamber, the largest known cave chamber in the world. These caves in turn support huge colonies of cave bats and swiftlets.
Robert Geneid anticipates that the online sales of the book will help to reach out to a worldwide audience. “Mulu is a place where you can marvel at the wonders of nature. Mulu’s beauty deserves to be shared with all of the people of the World.” Robert Geneid said.
The book itself shows not only the scenery and the biodiversity available in the area but also touches on the history and science of the creation of this geological masterpiece. The history of the various expeditions and explorations of the caves are also covered and includes old photographs from those expeditions.
The photographers that have contributed to the book include Robbie Shone, Ch’ien Lee, Jerry Wooldridge, Matt Kirby and many more. W.K. Fletcher and Donna Baylis, both retired Canadian geologist, also contributed their photos to the book.
