In the early 1970’s an area of 300,000 hectares was protected and named as Kutai Game Reserve. This protection did not prevent, because one third of the forest was cut in subsequent years. Trying to prevent a further decline, the Kutai National Park was established in 1982. However, great wood fires destroyed 60% of the protected forests in 1982-1983. Nowadays the forest is recovering and Kutai National Park is certainly worth a visit.
The main habitat in the park is primary and secondary tropical rainforest. At the coast, the vegetation consists of mangrove swamp, backed by freshwater swamp. There are several lakes in the reserve, they are; Danau Maau, Santan, Besar and Sirapan, and several species of primate together with more than 80% of the bird species of Borneo live here.
