Pulau Baun

baun.jpgJungle-clad Pulau Baun is Aru’s main terrestrial nature reserve, well-known locally as the island with the most abundant wildlife, including birds. While far from totally protected in practice, with both logging and hunting still taking place on it, it remains the best place to go to spot much of Aru’s fauna, especially the birds of paradise and the cockatoos. Wallabies and cassowries may also be seen deeper in the forest. The island’s main village is Kobadangar.
