Padahal, dibiarkan begitu saja, dijadikan paru-paru dunia, dan negara lain 'wajib setor' ke RI sebagai bagian dari 'oxygen taxes', plus wisata hutan dan 'off road' ... sudah banyak duit yang bisa di raup Pemerintah Indonesia.

PAYAU (RUSA HUTAN)
(SEJENIS PIRANHA SUNGAI DI KALIMANTAN)
Kalimantan memang kaya akan species flora dan fauna, Bahkan di Kabupaten KUTAI di Kaltim, ada sebuah hutan,
isinya hanya anggrek melulu, makanya disebut sebagai 'Hutan Anggrek'.
Sekarang bisa eloe bayangin sendirilah, selama ini kalau di jawa atau jakarta, kebanyakan orang hanya mampu berkebun anggrek, bukan!
Kebayang kagak, bijimana kalau sebuah hutan isinya anggrek melulu?
Tapi keindahannya hutan Kalimantan itu, terancam oleh para bisnisman asing dan jakarta yang menebangi kayunya kayak milik embah moyangnya aja!
(baik legal maupun yang illegal logging sejak era tahun 1970-an lalu), belum lagi konversi untuk lahan kelapa sawit dan tambang batubara
(era 2000-an sekarang ini).
