MAGNIFICENT RIVERS originating from mist-shrouded mountains covered by some of the world's oldest tropical rainforests, stunning coral reefs teeming with marine life and breathtaking unique habitats such as the Klang Gates Quartz Ridge, a world-class geological wonder, are some of the natural landscapes that make Malaysia a treasure trove of natural beauty.
This natural environment that provides for our most basic needs of clean air and water and is the bedrock upon which Malaysia’s socio-economic development is built on, enables us to enjoy a high quality of life. However, our modern lifestyles are applying tremendous pressure on our natural environment and its ability to continue providing these services.
How we act now will determine our future and that of our children. If every one of us takes simple steps to change our individual daily habits, this will grow into a large and concerted effort that will have a tremendous effect in reducing our ecological footprint.
