William and Kate visit Danum Valley, Malaysia.

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge refused transportation and chose to walk a distance of 500 metres from the Danum Valley Terrace House to meet 25 researchers and Oxford University undergraduates at the Field Centre Laboratory.

William was heard advising one of the researchers, Kogila Vani Annammala who focuses her research on soils within the conservation area, to “keep up the good work and keep digging.”

The nature-loving royal couple decided to walk through Danum Valley, Malaysia’s well-reserved rainforest, here, to end their visit to Malaysia.

Spending about three hours touring the Danum Valley Conservation Area, they also sat on tree branches to be briefed on ants and the other living creatures on trees within the 43,800 hectares conservation area.

They came in by Sabah Air’s eight-seater helicopter at 10.15am, where the Royal Highnesses were ushered in for a briefing on the conservation works jointly carried out by Yayasan Sabah and the Royal Society’s South East Asia Rainforest Research Programme (SEARRP), by Yayasan Sabah Conservation and Environmental Management Division group manager Dr Waidi Sinun, SEARRP’s director Dr Glen Reynolds, Sabah Tourism Board chairman Datuk Tengku D Z Adlin and Sabah Forestry Department director Datuk Sam Mannan, to mention some.
