Malaysia Tiger Conservation


Malaysia is a paradise of lush forests, pristine beaches and tropical islands. World renowned for its diversity of wildlife and people, this incredible country offers visitors a wealth of activities and fascinating things to see and do. The result of this fantastic melting-pot of culture is a relaxed, open-minded way of life, and the Malaysian people are famous for their hospitality. 

Based in the small rainforest town of Merapoh, this project makes a valuable contribution towards the protection of tigers, elephants, leopards and other indigenous species within the Taman Negara National Park, by reducing the once devastating poaching which occurred within the corridor between the two mountain ranges. Local guides will make it seem effortless to trek through the humid rainforest pointing out animal signs that you would never have noticed. 

You will also have the chance to visit a local Batek village where you will learn about their culture and daily activities. In return you will teach them basic English skills which will allow locals to benefit from the local tourist industry. A day will also be spent exploring the impressive local limestone caves. This project is a once in a lifetime chance to get involved in vital conservation as you monitor wildlife and protect endangered animals from poaching, and all while enjoying a slice of rainforest life in Malaysia.
