Bruno of Borneo. Gunung Mulu National Park. Part 1.

Episode 127,   Feb 06, 05:00 AM

Home is where the heart is. This phrase that is scrawled across on wooden sign boards and hung in countless houses across the world may be cliche, but it’s true. Bruno Manser may have been born in Switzerland, but his heart was in Borneo. A place where he fell in love with the jungle and the people in it. It was paradise, but it was in peril. The home Bruno found was in serious danger. A home he was willing to fight for the death to protect.
