The Habitat Penang Hill and The Habitat Foundation are pleased to invite you to our exhibition “Our Shared Habitat” which will be at the Event Hall of the UAB Building from 28 Sept – 28 Oct 2018.
The exhibition celebrates the amazing diversity of life within Malaysia’s amazing rainforests and the role natural ecosystems play in sustaining our living environment. At the same time, there is an urgent need to raise awareness of the impacts of human activities on the planet which threaten the quality of life and those of future generations. A sustainable future begins with understanding that we are a part of nature, not apart from it.
But it is not all doom and gloom. There is also cause for optimism. “Our Shared Habitat” is a timely opportunity to highlight the efforts of individuals and organizations we are associated with as well as those that are being supported by The Habitat Foundation. Significant among these is the support for the Penang Government’s Initiative to nominate the Penang Hill Biosphere Reserve under the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Reserve. This would be well-deserved recognition of this distinctive natural and cultural landscape and would provide the platform to make Penang a learning place for the collective global quest for sustainability.
Our objective for the exhibition is to awaken the desire among all that visit it to consider the actions they can take to reduce their environmental impact or protect important habitats. It is especially suited for students and all who are concerned about environmental conservation and sustainable living.
“Our Shared Habitat” is open to the public from 10.00 am – 7.00 pm daily (closed on Mondays). Admission is free.
Help us promote the exhibition on social media and you can win attractive gifts. There are tickets to The Habitat Penang Hill Sunset Walk as well as limited edition Habitat t-shirts given out each week!
In addition, free public talks will be held on most weekends at the Multi-Purpose Hall on Level 1. Be sure to visit our Facebook events page to find the scheduled talks on biodiversity and conservation throughout the month of October 2018!
