Gunung Rara Forest Reserve is a rainforest area in Malaysia, on the island of Borneo. It is located in South-Central Sabah, in Tawau Division. [1] Borneo elephants probably were killed in a concession area of Yayasan Sabah in the reserve. [2] [3] The concession was originally intended to be managed into perpetuity for the benefit of all Sabahans but was instead largely decimated by overharvesting. [4] The reserve sits between Danum Valley and Maliau Basin Conservation areas. [5] There are palm oil plantations in the reserve. [6] The rainforests in Sabah are endangered by palm oil plantations.
