Sarawak Conservation Programme

WWF-Malaysia Sarawak Conservation Programme turns nine, this year! We are working together with governments, businesses and communities on various projects such as protected areas, responsible forestry and community engagement. As its name implies, the project is centered on forestry practices that allow us to meet our current needs while giving future generations the chance to meet theirs.

Sustainable Forest Management project

One of our conservation efforts in Sarawak is the Sustainable Forestry Management (SFM). SFM centers on forestry practices that allow us to meet our current needs while giving future generations the chance to meet theirs.

The project area spans about 360,000 hectares in Sarawak, covering multiple forest management units, between Mulu National Park and Pulong Tau National Park. This forest connectivity is important because it allows wildlife to roam, eat and breed between one forest to the other.

The SFM project is also an integral part of our Heart of Borneo Corridor Initiative.
