Did you know that wildlife such as Malayan tigers, Bornean elephants and Bornean orang-utans are key to healthy forest ecosystems?

We need healthy forests for:
  • Clean air
  • Fresh water for our agriculture and food security, domestic use and businesses
  • Climate change mitigation
  • Soil stability
  • Recreation
  • The ecotourism industry

Please donate to support WWF-Malaysia’s efforts to save our wildlife, save our forests and save ourselves. We need a healthy natural world we can all rely on, which is vital for our survival, comfort and prosperity.

Why is wildlife key to healthy forest ecosystems?

Bornean Orang-utan

Bornean orang-utans play a vital role in seed dispersal and in maintaining the health of forests.

Malayan Tiger

As an apex predator, Malayan tigers keep populations of prey species in check, which in turn maintains the balance in the ecosystem.

Bornean Elephants

When Bornean elephants eat, they create gaps in the vegetation. These gaps allow new plants to grow and create pathways for other smaller animals to use. They also carry and disperse seeds far and wide as they travel from one area to another. This process helps spread new plants and regenerates trees in the forest.

What are the threats to our wildlife?

Iconic wildlife such as Malayan tigers, Bornean orang-utans and Bornean elephants are threatened by poaching, habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict.

What is WWF-Malaysia doing to save our wildlife?
