Landskap Malaysia is a non-profit organization founded on 25 March 2009. Initiated by YABhg Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and YABhg Tun Jeanne Abdullah, Landskap Malaysia aspires to create a Malaysian society ingrained with a culture of caring for and appreciating our natural landscape and rainforest.
Tropical Rainforest Conservation & Research Centre (TRCRC), sister company to Landskap Malaysia, has a broader vision. TRCRC focuses on the conservation and preservation of tropical rainforest plant species and to further help enhance the efforts of other related NGO’s in cultivating and maintaining a stable ecosystem.
Malaysia is ranked 10th on a list of the world’s 17 megadiverse countries as we are blessed with a rich biodivesity of flora and fauna.
Although Malaysia still has 56.4% tree cover, it is undeniable that development often takes precedence over preservation of the rainforest. As such, we are now facing many environmental disasters.
Around 70% of natural disasters are now climate related – up from around 50% two decades ago.
This can be attributed to climate change, green house effects, pollution, the endangering and lost of flora and fauna, and many more.
Despite these issues, Oxford University researchers report that the best technology to combat climate is to just plant trees.
