The Habitat Foundation is deeply committed to conserving biodiversity and natural environments. We work closely with government agencies, academic institutions, conservation practitioners, and partners in the community to bridge important gaps in preserving areas of conservation significance and protecting threatened species. Our conservation work focuses on science-based, pragmatic, strategic and timely interventions for measurable conservation impact.
In this work we are guided by the goals set in the United Nation’s Strategic Plan for Biodiversity, more commonly known as the Aichi Targets, as well as national policies such as Malaysia’s National Policy on Biological Diversity, the National Physical Plan, and the National Ecotourism Plan, among others. All these plans emphasize how preserving biodiversity benefits humanity and underline the need for new and greater levels of participation in biodiversity conservation interventions from all levels of society – from local communities and community-based organizations to industry and the private sector.
THF Conservation Grants are awarded to projects and initiatives that are undertaking innovative and strategic work towards key conservation outcomes.
