Mother Nature Speaks
You're greatest Achievement as our Forest Guardian
Planting a Tree in Honour - Plant a tree in someone's name - a unique and green gift to celebrate events such as birthdays, holidays, graduations, weddings, new births, anniversaries, or any special occasion. Now you can pay tribute to your friends and loved ones while planting a tree in our Private Nature reserve. Each tree planting includes a personalized commemorative card to be mailed to you or your gift recipient. Your personalized card (suitable for framing) will be stamped and mailed.
Planting trees on someone’s behalf is a great way to honour someone – and since trees provide so many natural benefits, it is a gift that keeps on giving.
Trees clean our air , absorbing harmful carbon dioxide and producing oxygen. They help to clean water for the millions of Malaysians who depend on a forest every time they turn on their faucets. Healthy forests sustain critical habitat needed for wildlife, and enhance our own outdoor pursuits.
Remembrance Trees for Pets - Pets are family and when your pet passes, it can be a time full of strong emotion and grief. A great way to remember a beloved pet who has passed is to plant a remembrance tree in their honour.
Protect, Restore & Conserve – As a Guardian you are helping us to reduce the fragmented forest from deforestation, reduction of forest cover, loss of Flora & Fauna, damage to the water catchment and river system, loss of tourism development resource & national natural heritage, elimination of potential medicinal resources and resources loss for education & research.
Endangered Tree Species – As a Guardian your support helps us to protect over 2,000 tropical rainforest tree species of which 70% are classified by International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as critically endangered species. Your support will also allow us to reintroduce / replant over 700,000 endemic tree species back into our private Nature Reserve.
Offsetting CO2 emission - Human activities are responsible for almost all of the increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere over the last 150 years. The largest source of greenhouse gas emissions from human activities in Malaysia is from burning fossil fuels for electricity and transportation. Trees absorbs carbon by capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and transforming it into biomass through photosynthesis. Trees help stop climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in the trees and soil, and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. Trees provide many benefits to us, every day. As a Guardian you are making a change for the future.
Restoring Forest Ecosystem - The importance of forests cannot be underestimated. We depend on forests for our survival, from the air we breathe to the wood we use. Besides providing habitats for animals and livelihoods for humans, forests also offer watershed protection, prevent soil erosion and mitigate climate change. Your participation as a Guardian gives us the opportunity to protect the Forest Biodiversity on our Private Nature Reserve.
Wildlife Refuge – Your commitment to be a Guardian helps us protect the Wildlife within the Private Nature Reserve and to ensure the survival of species. Wildlife is a precious gift of God to this planet. The term ‘wildlife’ not only caters to wild animals but also takes into account all undomesticated lifeforms including birds, insects, plants, fungi and even microscopic organisms.
For maintaining a healthy ecological balance on this earth, animals, plants and marine species are as important as humans. Each organism on this earth has a unique place in food chain that helps contribute to the ecosystem in its own special way.
But, sadly today, many of the animals and birds are getting endangered. The natural habitats of animals and plants are being destroyed by over logging activities by humans. Poaching and hunting of animals for fur, jewellery, meat and leather are other great factors contributing to wildlife extinction. If soon, no stringent steps are taken to save wildlife, it would not be long when they will find a place only on the list of extinct species.
Protecting the Pollinator – Virtually all of the world’s seed plants need to be pollinated. With adequate pollination, wildflowers: reproduce and produce enough seeds for dispersal and propagation, maintain genetic diversity within a population and develop adequate fruits to entice seed dispersers. With your contribution as a Guardian we are able to conserve and continue this biological cycle.
Nature Study Centre – Your support as a Guardian will give us an opportunity to further extend our commitment on Forest Education. The relevance of forest education is to ensure the next generation understands the positive role forests can play in helping humanity combat some of our most profound challenges; contributing to mitigation and resilience efforts in the face of climate change, housing massive terrestrial biodiversity and positively contributing to food and water security.
“Orang Asli” Community – As a Guardian you are helping us to improve the quality of life and socioeconomic activity of the aborigines from Lubuk Chupak Village, Lenggong, Perak comprising 117 family members which are from the Lanoh, Temiar and Jahai tribes. They are directly involved in our Social Forestry program.
