Who We Are
Besides our headquarters in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, we have programme offices in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and Kuching, Sarawak as well as site offices in Fraser’s Hill, Malacca, Jeli and Stong in Kelantan, Ma’ Daerah and Setiu in Terengganu.
Our early work focused on scientific research of wildlife and important natural habitats. This work later expanded to the management of protected areas. Today, WWF-Malaysia’s work covers the broader issues of the natural environment, incorporating such aspects as policy work, environmental education, public awareness and campaigns.
WWF-Malaysia currently runs more than 90 projects, including:
» Scientific field research
» Policy work with the government
» Environment education
» Public awareness programme
» Working with local communities to improve livelihoods and protect the environment
» Training and supporting other conservation organisations in Malaysia
' For the Trustees, staff and supporters of WWF in Malaysia and the rest of the world, conservation is not just a job; it is a mission to save the planet.'
