Cede Prudente

A Professional photographer and Conservationist, born in Lahad Datu, Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. Based in Sandakan on Sabah’s east coast, he lives in one of the world’s most diverse and exciting environments. With Borneo as his home, he is ideally situated to document every aspect of this remarkable natural world and to introduce it to others.

After graduating from university, Cede was involve in aquaculture business before plunging into the challenging task of managing the first wildlife lodge in Sukau, on the Kinabatangan river, in 1990. He learned from the ground up, running every aspect of the lodge as well as introducing researchers, film crews and tourists to the wildlife of one of the richest regions in Southeast Asia.

His constant efforts towards nature conservation led to his appointment as manager of Partners for Wetlands, a project initiated by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Malaysia, from 1998-2001. The goal of this project was to work with various government agencies, the oil palm sector, tour operators and the local community to establish a plan for wetland management and to ensure the restoration and conservation of the Lower Kinabatangan floodplain.


Title: My Home

Late every afternoon, mature and older adolescent orang-utans build a simple nest in which to sleep at night. Normally, a nest is abandoned after one night's use, decaying a period of many months.
Young orang-utans may play at snapping off twigs and building play nests, but they sleep with their mother in a single nest up to six years of age.
