Communities for Conservation
Millions of people, from all walks of life, regularly enjoy the beautiful treasures of Malaysia's natural environment - from walks in neighbourhood parks, to snorkelling lazily above the coral reefs, to extreme eco-adventures. The natural environment is essential for maintaining community sustainability.
Human activities have a tremendous impact on the natural environment, particularly activities in urban areas. As technology develops and cities grow, the world is becoming more and more urbanized. However, people living in urban areas are often the most disconnected from the environment and they do not make the connection between their activities and its impacts on the Earth. With the growing pressures on the natural environment, how long will these priceless treasures remain intact and continue providing for our needs?
We need to care for the environment as much as we love enjoying the environment. Caring begins with each and every one of us as individuals. We often ask the question, "What difference can I make?"
It is our combined impact which makes a difference. If each one of us takes simple steps to care for the environment, then together these actions will make a difference. We have to take ownership of improving our own, our children's and our community's daily quality of life, now and in the future.
TrEES Communities for Conservation programme, galvanises the community to care for their environmental heritage. Through our various programmes, we help to empower the community in taking action to reduce their ecological footprint.
