Bogani Nani Wartabone National Park

Maleo Bird in Bonani Nani Wartabone National ParkBogani Nani Wartabone National Park, formerly known as Dumoga Bone, is an area of ecological uniqueness. Its is located in the transitional zone between the Indo-Malayan geographical zone in the western part and the Papua-Australian geographical zone in the eastern part (the Wallaceae Area).

Several peculiar and endangered species of plant inhabit this Park, including the matayangan palm (Pholidocarpus ihur), black wood (Diospyros celebica), iron wood (Intsia spp.), yellow wood (Arcangelisia flava), and carrion flower (Amorphophallus companulatus). The most commonly found species are Piper aduncum, Trema orientalis, Macaranga sp., cempaka, agathis, kenanga, and various species of orchid and ornamental plants.

Tarsier Spectrum - the smalles monkey in the worldThis Park has 24 species of mammal, 125 species of bird, 11 species of reptile, 2 species of amphibian, 38 species of butterfly, 200 species of beetle and 19 species of fish. Most of animals living in this Park are endemic species to Sulawesi, like the black-crested macaque (Macaca nigra nigra), Tomini black-crested macaque (M. nigrescens), eastern tarsier (Tarsius spectrum spectrum), Sulawesi palm civet (Macrogalidia musschenbroekii musschenbroekii), lowland anoa (Bubalus depressicornis), mountain anoa (B. quarlesi), babirusa (Babyrousa babyrussa celebensis), and various bird species. The mascot of the Park is the maleo fowl (Macrocephalon maleo). A species endemic to this Park is the Bone bat (Bonea bidens).

The body of the maleo is about the same size as that of a chicken, but its eggs are six times heavier. The maleo lays its eggs in the ground or sand at a depth of 30-40 cm, usually close to thermal springs: this thermal energy helps the eggs to hatch. The sight of the maleo chicks emerging from the ground, and, at one day old, running to an open space of land, and the opportunity to catch glimpses of the maleo mother digging holes, are unique attractions for visitors.
