This project on the border of the Taman Negara National Park, Malaysia aims at reducing poaching in the wildlife corridor near the park, at the main mountain range in West Malaysia. By jungle trekking in this area, your presence will act as a deterrent to poachers whilst collecting vital data on animal tracks and signs.
You will also explore limestone caves and visit the Batek tribal village to learn about their lifestyle & host a Conservation English session for the children. The inclusion of the local people is vital to the conservation effort as they are the eyes and ears of the forest.
You will learn a lot about the rainforests and your presence will help not just the tigers but all of the denizens of the rainforests. For the wild populations of animals to breed successively, they need to move freely between large patches of forest and without this green corridor, the main populations of Tiger, Elephants and Leopards in West Malaysia will no longer be able to interbreed.
The tiger conservation program aims to:
- Educate the public and the local community on the threats towards our wildlife in Malaysia through guided jungle walks.
- Promote the beauty and the diversity of Malaysia's rainforest through the caving activities and the jungle walks to instill the sense of appreciation towards our rainforest.
- Encourage healthy interaction between the local communities.
