Greetings from Malaysian Nature Society (MNS).
MNS has a reputation for publishing reference books, children books and including checklists to Malaysian Biodiversity since its was first formed in 1949.
Have you seen our "Siri Buku Alam Pak Cipan?" It gives information on Malaysian Biodiversity that'll enrich children's knowledge and adult alike!
What about our "Endau Rompin"? It highlights findings of an expedition in 1985 that was organized by MNS back then. The finding became a basis for the protection of this site and later was declared as Taman Negara Endau Rompin.
This 79 year old Society is still thriving to promote the conservation of Malaysia's Natural Heritage till today.
What about Borneo Chapter? What have we done in Borneo? In Sarawak, we are proud to inform that we are working with the local government for the protection of Bako-Buntal Bay, a FLYWAY, which is part of the route that migratory birds uses on its way moving from the Northern Hemisphere to the Southern Hemisphere.
