Plant Trees to Offset Carbon in the Kinabatangan Sanctuary

Description

The Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary is located on the east coast of the Malaysian state of Sabah in Borneo and is one of the richest ecosystems on earth, with shallow freshwater lakes, open swamps, and lush forests dotted with sandstone and limestone hills.

The range of biodiversity in the Lower Kinabatangan surpasses that of every other region in Malaysia and features everything from Orangutans, proboscis monkeys, Sabah pygmy elephants, the almost extinct Sumatran rhino, and all eight hornbill species in Borneo. Unfortunately, deforestation has been a significant threat to all these species, which is why we created this tree planting experience to do our part to preserve this incredible biodiversity hotspot.

During this tree planting tour, you will get to experience and learn about our habitat restoration projects in the Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary, where flora and fauna are abundant. We'll start by traveling by boat along the majestic Kinabatangan River to get to our reforestation site, where we'll catch glimpses of the incredible wildlife that call this place home. Once we get to the restoration site, we'll work together to plant trees specifically chosen based on the type of soil and trees surrounding the area. If you're lucky, you will be able to hear some monkeys high up in the tree or see signs of animals that have been in the area.

You will be leaving a positive impact by connecting existing patches of the forest into one long corridor. And as a memory of this experience and your effort to make this happen, you will receive the GPS coordinates of the trees you have planted.

We hope that one day you will return and see 'your trees' full of life.
