RAINFOREST for WILDLIFE is the Our Malaysian effort in reforestation work on several sites located along the Kinabatangan River. With humble beginnings in August 2008, it focuses on reconnecting fragmented forest of the Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary, establishing a continuous corridor for the diverse flora and fauna of this unique rainforest floodplain.
A majority of reforestation sites along the Kinabatangan River are ex-logging sites, former log dumping sites, abandoned or alienated land or former agriculture land such as oil palm that have been returned for reforestation. The sites that Our Team is working on are ex-logging and former log dumpsites. Manpower for the Rainforest for Wildlife project comes from paying volunteers to the Borneo Wildlife Safari/Orang-utan and Pygmy Elephant experience.
Although small in numbers, volunteers or students are present almost every month, providing the Rainforest for Wildlife Project a continuous stream of people to ensure the success of this reforestation effort.
