Ulu Muda Forum 2 - Importance of Ulu Muda for Forest and Biodiversity Conservation, Ecotourism and Local Livelihoods
Time & Location
About the Event
The Greater Ulu Muda Forest in northern Peninsular Malaysia is extremely rich in biodiversity. It is the home of endangered/threatened large mammals such as the Asian elephant, Malayan sun bear, Malayan tapir, all 10 species of hornbills, the sambar deer, as well as over 320 species of birds and other flora and fauna. The Greater Ulu Muda Forest needs to be better protected in terms of forest conservation, biodiversity conservation, ecotourism and protecting local livelihoods.
