Malaysia Wildlife Conservation Awareness Campaign
DON’T LET THEM BE HISTORY
According to the 2007 IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, life on Earth is disappearing fast and will continue to do so unless urgent action is taken.
- 14% of Malaysia’s mammals are listed by The World Conservation Union (IUCN) as endangered
- 30 species of turtle ever discovered, only 7 are left.
- Less than 1,500 Borneo Pygmy elephants are found in the world.
- It is estimated that there are less than 20 Sumatran rhinoceros left in Borneo.
- The Bornean species of orangutan is highly endangered, and the Sumatran species is critically endangered, according to the IUCN Red List of mammals, and both are listed on Appendix I of CITES.
In Malaysia today the survival of wildlife often takes second place to human activity.
Does saving these endangered species and taking necessary actions for those who are on the brink of extinction means anything to you?

Here at Malaysia Travel Guide, we seek to promote Malaysia Tourism in the right way.
Our first campaign revolves around the conservation of Malaysia wildlife. We seek to increase public awareness and knowledge of the value of biodiversity, its threats, and actions that will conserve wildlife and natural areas in Malaysia.
We believe that Wildlife conservation begins with education; The World Conservation Strategy states that until people understand why they should safeguard ecosystems and species they will not do so.
It is to address this lack of understanding that Malaysia Travel Guide introduced The Malaysia Wildlife Conservation Awareness Campaign.
“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.” – Mother Teresa.
Wildlife conservation begins with each of us – and each of us can make a difference. The best way to raise awareness is simply talking about it.
What can YOU do?
There are a number of options.
- Blog / Write a post that relates to the Malaysia wildlife conservation. It can be to do with your usual topic or totally just about a Malaysia wildlife conservation issue.
