The Habitat Foundation is dedicated to supporting the conservation of biodiversity and ecosystems upon which we all depend. It programme of work falls within these main areas:-
We support initiatives to safeguard biodiversity, reverse the loss and degradation of natural ecosystems, and advocate for the sustainable use of natural resources by working closely with government agencies, experts, NGOs, and community partners.
We fund research in conservation biology and related fields in order to identify practical and actionable solutions to protect biodiversity and promote environmental sustainability. As a strategic centre for rainforest research in our region we provide a dynamic platform for interchange among scientists and conservationists.
With The Habitat Penang Hill established as an acclaimed rainforest discovery centre, we aim to serve as a hub to raise the quality, reach, and impact of environmental education for schoolchildren. In addition, we support targeted programmes to enhance public environmental awareness and effective community engagement.
We are actively providing a working model of a circular economy in which the funds generated from protected areas are channeled into their effective management and conservation. Emphasis is also placed on empowering local communities to play a central role in conservation and to obtain benefits from participating in sustainable tourism.
